I’m looking forward to seeing more. I may need one of these when they get released.

so far I can see:
1. no popup flash
2. no ev+- buttons
3. no AF toggle
4. additional wheel ok d-pad(possibly for EV)
5. substantially larger screen(touchscreen)
6. video recording function added to wifi button

My only question is, will I be able to use an optical viewfinder with it?

Itís listed as an accessory, presumably the same as for the previous version of the GR, since the FL hasnít changed.

I am pretty sure this will be easily possible. An optical viewfinder in the hotshoe will always work.

This is very HANDS-OFF with the Ricoh GRIII.

Article title is clickbait. No "hands-on" feedback, they show some photos of the camera inside a display case.

How do you think - what will Ricoh do with GRIII for 5-6 months? The camera body is under glass, it could means that it's not final product yet.

I don't own a GR but I was planning on getting one. I do use the flash on my Q7 and my Sony Nex-3n.

I used GXR with 18/2.8 module and never found situation for using flash. It's wide angle lens.
