Re: GR3 really worth over the GR2?

The original aps-c GR have problem with stuck shutter which occur some time after about 10k exposures. Although it is a designflaw and seemingly enough well known, Ricoh have as far as I know not made some statement that them will repair it on goodwill.

So these with expired warranty will have to pay a high price to get it repaired.

I have not heard about this problem regarding the GRII however so that would definitely be the one to go for of those two. Especially as it have some other improvements which other have mentioned.
