Update - the GRD is fixed. Quite expensive. They also did an overhaul and brought the camera back up to spec. Hopefully worth it in the long run. The turn around was quite fast. More time spent in transit than in repair. And CRIScam was very pleasant to deal with.
This is not, by a long shot, my only digital camera. (Have at least 3 other quality p&s plus a dSLR). More and more, though, I'm taken by the quality of the b&w photos from this camera. Besides, the build quality is better than any of my other cameras. And it is quite convenient to carry around all the time.
Now, though, I have gotten a case for the camera. So it is no longer a "true" pocket camera. And found out the case from an Olympus Stylus is a perfect fit. Especially with gaffer tape over the name
If I just ignore the fact that my total outlay on this camera is now more than a new one would cost, I'm fine. This does prevent the camera from ending up in a landfill.
