thanks for your input,

why do you give #16 Smaller grip: I ?

even Chris Niccolls often talks about this detail in his reviews

#13 Wasted space on mode dial: I

so you think it is not a waste but the right move from Ricoh ? there shouldn't be anything for user at this dial position ?

You may recognize that GR3 divided GR enthusiasts into two groups who embrace it and who reject it. Among the latter group there are people who intensely dislike it and the important point is that they have been avid GR users. I feel that something is not right with GR3 despite many people accept it. I think there are many flaws in GR3 and it has resulted from the designing stage. My conjecture, a Pentax-Ricoh fiasco? For better or worse the selection and workmanship of material is not top notched either. (I do not have to give an example as you may understand.) As a result GR3 users may have to live with whatever flaws it entails. It is a pity.
