Any K-5 shooters ever shot a Ricoh GXR

If you have shot the Ricoh GXR, what are your thoughts on it?

Saw one and felt one at the Pentax K-30 tour in Minneapolis. Never tried it out though, I would be more interested in the Sony RX100 imo.

I've tried one a couple of times as a friend uses one.

Very well built, feels solid like Pentax stuff and all the necessary buttons are there (ie. not much menu diving).
Rear screen was nice since the resolution is higher than the one on the K5.
The EVF is a bit too low resolution, though I can easily live with one, coming from a G3 user.
Peaking is a nice feature and a marriage made in heaven with the EVF and RF lenses.

Its a nice camera for manual focus RF lenses.
