Ricoh will fix affected GR III cameras with “wobbly control dial/pad”

Ricoh Korea and Ricoh Japan have issued notices that the control dial/pad on some Ricoh GR III cameras could be defective/wobbly – Ricoh claims that this is normal, but in some cases, the tolerance is not acceptable and the affected serial numbers will be fixed (Google translation):

“The basic specification is to set a slight rotation allowance width, but as a result of investigation, it has been found that some products with the following target serial numbers have combinations with large display inclinations.”

Update – here is the official notifications form Ricoh USA.

The affected serial numbers are:

  • 0010046 to 0022290
  • 2010043 to 2012044
  • 3010045 to 3010544
  • 4010041 to 4010230

Ricoh will start providing fixes to affected cameras on April 8th. I could not find any info on the Ricoh Imaging US site.
