Thank you Pavel!

I am very interested in the next update for the GX100 and hope it will have the improvements the GR has already.
What I really miss in all todays digicams is a dedicated HDR scene mode where the cam takes let's say 7 jpegs with different exposures (+/-3 EV).

This would make handheld-hdr a lot easier
-MM-s suggestion of a dedicated HDR mode would please me also, although I think I'd prefer it to be several RAW files rather than JPEGs.
I confess I'm almost a complete newb to 'proper' digital photography but everything I've read about HDR seems to point to RAW over JPEGs.
The nice thing with several jpeg is, that this should be fast enough to enable handheld HDR shots. Due to the long raw writing times it wouldn't be possible to do this with raw. But ona tripod of course, a Raw HDR mode would also make everything easier.
