What frame-lines does it have , anything relevant to the GT-2 , or is it just 40mm and ticks for 1:1 aspect ratio.

Just 40mm and 1:1 I'm afraid.

Is it 3:2 or 4:3?

It's 3:2, the native GR III aspect ratio, unlike the GV-2 which has the wrong one.

That’s because the GV-2, and GV-1, came from the GRD days where the sensor was 4:3 aspect ratio. I was surprised that Ricoh didn’t release updated versions for the GR APS-C range.

I thought the GV-1 had the correct framelines, unlike the 2.

I doubt it as I got mine with the original GRD and it would have been wrong for that if it was 3:2. I’ll dig it out and check.

That I'm not sure at all when I owned this for a year or so shows how little I ended up using it. I've had the GV-3 on the IIIx for about 10 days now and it's been on my camera for longer than the GV-1 ever was.

I still think the GV-1 has the correct framelines for the III and the GW-4 but it may simply be that I never noticed they were different.
