Ricoh today announced the development of the GXR Lens Mount Unit for its GXR interchangeable unit camera system. The GXR Lens Mount Unit module will accept Leica M-mount lenses, allowing access to a large selection of high-quality Leica M-mount lenses that date back to 1954, as well as third-party M-mount lenses such as those from Voightlander and Carl Zeiss. These are all manual-focus lenses.
In addition to the ability to accept Leica M-mount lenses, the GXR Lens Mount Unit will feature a 12.9MP CMOS APS-C sized sensor. There will also be a newly developed focal plane shutter.
There are currently four camera unit modules available for the GXR interchangeable unit camera system, the S10 24-72mm unit, the A12 50mm unit, the A12 28mm unit, and the P10 28-300mm unit.
Announced release is fall of 2011.
