list of changes is not impressive.

Raw file burst depth
White Balance
Exposure compensation during movie capture
Creative effects during movie capture
More effects modes
Interval Composite shooting
In-camera raw processing
Pixel mapping

and even Improved battery life could be made by firmware

You can't have the same package and an evf and a F2 lens and and IBIS and an articulating screen and still have a decent flash. It is what it is, and it is a concept that appeals to a lot of people apparently. It is a niche product. Stop trying to turn it into a mainstream one.

They could have added an accessory port for a hotshoe EVF. Or a flip-up LCD would have been brilliant for waist-level shooting. But, as it stands, the GR is probably a better product for not indulging every single one of our fantasies. It's what Ricoh wants it to be and that's partly what makes it so special.

I hope that we could see FF GR next year...What do you think about it? Is it real?
Such camera could be smaller with 28/2.8 lens than RX1R and Leica Q and cheaper.

Maybe, but it's not interesting for me at all.

Not for me, so not for anybody.
The GRII is a niche product made better; its initial production volumes is a mere 5000 units per month. Was it a mistake not reallocating resources from the FF DSLR project, in order to get a completely reworked GR?

I don't think so. My propositions are very strong. I think Wi-Fi and NFC are good features, but not important at all for me.

If to say seriously, Ricoh doesn't use any opinions of any forum users.
They doesn't care about it.

I think that the most strong things in camera are to help to get better final result = IQ and to have better WR.


GRII's final result will be the same as GR's result. No any changes in WR resistance of camera. That's why I skip GRII.

That's alright. You're not the center of the universe. As hard as it is to learn, it won't kill anybody...
