Glitching GR1d

Wondering if anyone else's original GR1d (or other GR model) is glitching like this? This occurs primarily in high contrast situation, irrespective of any other settings. If your GR is doing this, please send me a PM.

I wish I could help you, but I can't. If it's of any consolation, of all the camera glitches I've seen, that one produces the most aesthetically pleasing results.

I was about to say as well that this glitch actually makes the picture stronger.

It is a variable amount of "glitchiness" that seems to be caused by the level of contrast in a scene. Another example:

I absolutely do not want it fixed, and I have no interest in selling it. I really would like to find another, actually.
