Gerry, same here..
Yep I also still have a r1.. Still keeps on going.. One of the things I like about it is how the LCD is setup. It can be set to be top look down like a tlr.. Unlike today's normal flip LCD, this one is designed so it is right over the pseudo slr housing. When not in use, flip it the other way and totally protected.
I still use mine occasionally. It is the oldest digital camera I still use out side of maybe the new to me Olympus epl1 (recent bought as an IR camera).
