Tom Caldwell: Great news for Ricoh GR owners - they can get at least two more years use of their robust Ricoh gear before update envy sets in. A great camera will not get less great and the true cost of ownership is spread over the useful life of any purchase - which for a Ricoh is longer than most. My older GRD's and the GXR still work fine and remain competitive.

Great news for those that don't already have a GR - they are making more as stocks of the first series are running low.

The best cameras hardly need an update.

And truly serious well made cameras hardly need a basket of jitter-bug features to make them attractive. If you can live without wifi then the remaining stocks of the present model are not going to last long.

Best grab one while you can.

There is no real competitor to the GR.

magneto shot: image stability ricoh. the camera is so light, blurring is almost built in.

This has nothing to do with "super photographers" it is a physical fact that wide angle lenses don't need stabilisation, especially not on crop sensors, and if you find yourself constantly shooting below, say, 1/30 with this, the problem is more on your side. It would only make the camera bigger and could add an unnecassary layer of possible problems. You know, image stabilisation can even introduce blur, if handeled or implemented poorly.
