SR, snap focus...um, tilting screen that adds no depth? I already want the current GR, so anything else is gravy.

I just bought a barely used GR. I love it and so does my wife. If the GRII has a 2.0 lens and no additional changes I'll buy it; would love to see sr and wr. Wifi is a no-brainer. Tscreen would be ok, but the user interface is so good they may jack it up with an entirely new interface. An optical viewfinder came with mine and I never use it. A built-in ovf would be nice if it allowed for a low power consumption mode. I can't wait to see the specs on this thing!

So do I.
If only 'coz it will bring the current one lower.

I was interested in the GR but not more than that. Then I held one at the same show in Brussels where I tried the DFAs. That thing is so damn small...

Not long until they release info/spec for the GR II, but Q FF won't come in this century

And here is a photo of the GR II from Digicame-info. It looks exactly the same as the original GR from this angle, with the same markings on the lens. This also implies the sensor size is the same. Apparently, there is a slight change to the top area by the hotshoe.

At least we know it's coming soon. Unfortunately, the flashing lights of the K-S1 don't seem to have made it into this design.

It looks like a photo of the present GR. Are you sure it's meant to be the revised model?

This report shows the difference more clearly, and also claims it contains the same 16mp sensor.

I wonder if the added bulk at the top is for Wi-Fi or GPS.

Thank you. The side by side comparison clarifies things. If the major difference is the new hotshoe, as that report indicates, I wonder whether there's a more sophisticated EVF in the works, or whether your suggestion of WiFi or GPS is concealed behind it?
