Ricoh GR II Shutter Button - Full Press doesn't work at times
1

I just got a used Ricoh GR II from mpb, and everything works great but I noticed that the shutter button doesn't complete the press sometimes, especially if pressed around the sides rather than at the center. I half-press, lock focus, and then full press...I get the tactile feedback from the full press, but the shot is not taken. If I press harder, or move my finger towards the center of the button and try again, it works.

Is this functioning as designed, or is this a defect? Wondering if I should return it.

It seems to me like a design flaw because the button is a long one (rectangular rounded), and pressing on the edges means that the button has to travel more to complete the press. The problem is that the tactile feedback is received just a little bit before it is pressed down completely. It's almost like it requires three press-downs to take the shot. First is the half press to focus. Then the full press, which doesn't yet take the shot. And then a harder press to complete it.

If you have a GR II, do you observe the same behavior?

Thanks!
