Paul, as much as I like Ricoh, I'm somewhat not willing to pay the premium UK price for such small piece of plastic
And while domestic (UK) shipping may be free, EU shipping is definitely not free. So in this case, I picked a bit cheaper JP shop with free delivery. On the other hand, I still consider the price of GH-3 shocking (even from the JP shop). What I saw on photos, the GH-3 looks much cheaper than its predecessors. The GH-3 seems have a plain finish instead of rugged GH-2 finish. Plus there are no contacts like in case of GH-1 and GH-2. So the manufacturing process of GH-3 looks to be even easier/cheaper. I'm really curious how the GH-3 looks and feels on the GR.
BTW, I just tracked it via Japanese post and it finally arrived to Prague. So there is a chance it will reach me this week? Or maybe not?
