Yes, it was. Apparently, they're not good enough for professional use…

To be fair, he was probably offered that lens lineup for the shoot, and the 16-50 would have been the most versatile lens for the situation.
They probably gave him two in case the SDM failed... Ha ha ha ha

Hmm. The gloss would quickly go off the image, if they hadn't solved the SDM issue by the time they started handing out those lenses. You'll pardon my lack of humour on that issue, having been down several ultimately unsuccessful paths to fix mine.

Yes. And the airshow version! And the motor sports version!

But since I have the black version on pre-order, with perhaps availability on 1st November, I may soon have it in my hands and be able to try for myself. (But the airshow season has finished .... Oh!)

Is it wrong to want a Glamour version?

A positive take-away from this is that Ricoh clearly pays attention to what influential web sites like IR (and no doubt DPR) say about their gear.
I thought the K-3's dedicated video button was proof enough of that. (At least for DPR, anyway.)
