Ricoh Fun with Ricoh GRD

In the last few days, I downloaded the current version of Lightroom (5.4) and have been revisiting old images. My first port of call was my Olympus EM-5 images, as Lightroom finally has Olympus colour profiles, but I was soon into my GRD III images from 2010. Fortunately, my skills in post have improved in the last four years, and I'm surprised at what I can wring out of what I thought were insipid snapshots.

My present post style is often to take a 4:3 image and crop it to 3:2, 16:9, or even 2.35:1 anamorphic cinema ratio and 2.7:1 Hasselblad X-Pan ratio. My experience with creating the Fauxveon presets for the Ricoh GR have allowed me a whole new take on Hue/Sat/Lum adjustments across colours, as well as split-toning.

Shot on the second day of owning the GRD3 from inside a moving cab going thru Times Square. Was testing out the "snap focus" mode.

Gawd I miss my GRD3! Its been mothballed because I'm sick of fighting with the broken battery latch and trying to get it to start every time I use it.

For those who have had both/all... which would be best to get these days, the GRD3/4 (if you could find one) or the GR?

I only have the GRD3, but I would say that GR is the best, but also the most expensive. I would love to have that APSC sensor in my GRD3. :-/
GRD3/4 are great cameras, but I feel that the 1/1.7" sensor is holding them back.

Here are 2 more taken with the 3.
