GR III dodgy command dial

Hi all,

I’ve just picked up a GR III on rental to try.

I'm having the issue where moving the control dial results in severely exaggerated movements in random directions. I note that my serial number (4010139) is within a range that Ricoh announced in 2019 they would repair the fault.

Before I return the unit, has anyone had success getting this fixed? The camera otherwise is in pretty good condition and I can buy at a good price.

If anyone in Australia has been able to get theirs repaired, would be interested in hearing who did it and how it went.

Any input from anyone that has worked through this is appreciated, thanks.
