A green ring on the lens...? Interesting.

(Oh, do I wish that the Canadian dollar hadn't taken such a hit lately.)

The red ring was a short lived experiment. Green has been back for a while now.

Weeeeeeeehoooo, now we need kenspo to spill the rest of the beans! At these prices im getting a body and the 15-30 as soon as they are available to preorder here in Sweden! I guess many more with me are feeling the same thing $1800 is fantastic! way to go RICOH! Thats right, I said it, RICOH! I think this camera deserves a RICOH badge on it, Without them we would never get this camera!!! And people complain about they printing their name on the body... I love RICOH, right now I think I would marry RICOH if I could...

And I almost forgot

Pentax is doomed!
