I have an R-D1, upgraded to R-D1s with the firmware upgrade and also
extremely pleased with the results from it. Especially since I can use all
of my M lenses digitally.
I bought it here in the UK from Calumet who did a price match against Robert
White, and saved an awful lot of money on the original list price. :-)
