Thanks for all your work on this topic Pavel (and the site in general)
I for once am shocked to see the extent of NR in my GRD2 pictures (even with NR off). The special GRD-look is gone from the jpg-files, sadly, very sadly. I loved my GRD for its capability to shoot B&W at high ISO's in jpg, now they are "ruined" by the NR, i.e. that lovely film-like look is gone...
I know that it can be avoided if shooting in raw, but I like to be out there shooting, not only fiddling in Lightroom.
Why change a winning combination, Ricoh I don't get it??? Don't listen to the reviewers, listen to your customers!
I also contacted Ricoh for a firmware update adressing this (and the max 1/800 at F2.4, if possible) problem.
