I'm now OFF the pre-order train, as my GRiii arrived yesterday

I've never had any of its predecessors, so it's all new. So far I'd say it feels good, and the menu system is great.
Whoa! Notice all the conttols on the right, you can shoot absolutely silently with a fixed 1.5m focus range or whatever, held one hand with thumb on the shutter button.

Yep. And it fits comfortably in a (biggish) pocket, or the palm of my hand.

My GR III arrived today. It's a tiny beast in terms of usability and ergonomics. Any setup adjustment I could think of, it offers it. And I think I'm already spoiled by my K3-II in this regard.

Just for fun I attached my only pttl flash, the AF200FG, to the GR III just to notice two expected things: it dwarfs the camera, and it works perfectly fine despite not being listed as compatible by Ricoh.

Obligatory cat photo in macro mode, straight out of darktable just because I left outputs to raw-only.

Didn't expect mine until this coming Tuesday. Happy post today!
The size of the GRDIII and GRDIV, but the heft/mass of the GR/GRII.
It's a meaty feeling bit of kit.

Welcome. The water is usually quite nice.
