I have a grey MZ-RH1 bought in Vietnam but coming from japanese market. The menu are in english and I did not even notice a langage menu before. Sadly I cannot give you more help as it have joggel problems that do not allowed me to navigate easily in the menu again. That could be an answer to you though, english menu is included in asiatic MZ-RH1. I rode somewhere that the 3 lines remote have japanes characters capabilities, that does not mean the MZ-RH1 has japanese or chinese capabilities itself . Never bought anything from eBay Hong Kong myself. I am searching for a MZ-RH1 myself, but one with lens or inside mechanic problem so I can make a GOOD MZ-RH1 with 2 units.
