+1. I hope more people ahead of me cancel their preorder so that I can get mine faster. Yes it seems the RAW color issue has been overblown. Although DNG is an open format, it has a room for vendor specific extensions. Yes Adobe has to support Ricoh GR DNG officially to see full potential of GR...
Check out the link. The simple lens design helped the dual motors design feasible. The retracting lens doesn't look bad at all, and it has the auto lens cap. Yeah compact or no compact... that's the question!!!
I like 28mm FOV as much as 35mm FOV. X100S needs a 28mm wide adapter to achieve that, and I'm glad to hear about Ricoh GR's "10MP 35mm equivalent crop mode" feature.
Would its LCD display the cropped FOV on its full screen? Would it produce cropped RAW/JPEG?
The 28mm equivalent FOV is great for snapshot/street photography, and the smaller is easier to carry around. Ricoh GR is lighter than Lumix GF3 body only. The Lumix 14mm 2.5 is darn cheap and EPM2's dynamic range is pretty good. But the leaf shutter compact is definitely enticing to me nowadays.
