Has Ricoh a tradition of using the II designator on new models? If not, this may be a manifestation of Pentax influence on Ricoh. If so, It stands to reason that the GRII will be almost indistinguishable- externally- from the GR. My guess would be that there will be no major changes to hardware associated with the camera....Maybe a few new operating features.

GRD were incremented up to nIV with gradual and relatively few evolutions... that's a fact.

When the GR and the Nikon A came out, I went with the A. It has been a good camera. But I believe, had I the chance to to make the decision again, I would go with the GR because of it's superior feel in hand and much lighter weight. If the new camera is not going to include any new, major physical feature, e.g. tilt screen, EVF, SR, I would like to see something really cool and unique, like a dedicated/enhanced B&W sensor. I would go for that in a heartbeat....Even though I already own the A.

For sure the current GR would go into my pocket, once below 500 bucks.
