This is Part IV of the Ricoh GXR experience. But don't roll your eyes—this will be very brief; then, I think there will be a long pause as I come up to speed on the features, firmware versions, the zoom lens I don't want to use, etc.
First observation: The handling on this little camera is almost addictive. I liked it from the start and now, when we should be getting to the "honeymoon's over" stage, I like it more.
Second Observation: The module design which makes so little sense to us shopper savants happens to make for a good conversation piece. At the 4th of July gathering I went to yesterday, people would ask politely, "Now what kind of digital camera are you using?" And I'd do my little schtick of popping the lens/sensor unit off the camera, and people liked that. (I know people like something when I get the question, "How much?" They didn't like that answer, though.)
We now return to our regular programming.
