So frreaking lame that film advance lever is only a thumb rest. That really peeved me off to be quite honest.

This is a gold camera all the way.

In my book.

If anything alone it should be rated higher than the Olympus by mere ease of use. Like ease of use doesn't translate into something important in real life. C'mon guys.

Come on, Dpreview! Do it! ;-)

Maganar- "What we know" Who the f are "we" and who are you attempting to speak for? And what does your comment have to do with mine at all?

Chris and Jordan should do it like they have with Pentax cameras. See if Canon can survive.

But we know that ain't gonna happen because we already know the answer.

In reply to:

pro photo 2011: The closest competitor of the new GR III is not Fuji X100F.

It's Fuji's new XF10, which is a stripped down replacement of its X70 camera.

It also has a 24 MP APS-C sensor in a body about as small. And its 28mm lens does not extend much when turned on.

It does not have IBIS nor flippy rear screen.

It does have a built-in flash which the GR III won't have.

The XF10 is priced at $499.

I don't see these flying off dealer shelves.

That's why I said I don't see how Ricoh can sell the GR III for more than $399. It's a simplified model of the GR II.

164 now :)

minoltak: It is just a marketing tool.
I would like to see their promo programs for middle East, Saudi Arabia or even mother country Japan.
This is targeted to the north American women only.

Sony's marketing is and has been a disaster. I bet other employees at Sony wish they didn't even exist.

CarpentersEye: The entire idea of this camera is flawed at the core. While it is good and right to love it, disagree and to have produced 28mm (eqiv) only cameras; hatefulness against other points of view and posters does not change the fact that this camera design can never take advantage of longer focal lengths; in any case. Add-ons not justifiably considered as this camera or without major cons. If you wish to pay more for less then that's fine. The choice though; not the less.

The tenor of some in these forums; when someones states a fact that may provoke feeling of disagreement is extremely childish. But how you know anything; is BS walks. Good is as good does. Bad is as bad does. And bad always pretends to be good. The problem starts with having no standard. If you believe everything is relative then you are the problem and it is evil.

So well said Kreislauf.

Like I said, "gotta love the internet man..."

Neil has clarified it several times. If you were a fan of Rush, maybe you'd know. I'm 100% positive I'm right.

make.believe.

What about what CPphoto said above about you?

And no, because I scoff at Sony's silly marketing campaigns it doesn't mean I hate the brand. So again, you're better off not making assumptions :)
