(FT2) UPDATED -> Ricoh with APS-C sensor

Share

UPDATE: One of our source told us: “The new camera will not have a proprietary bayonet mount, and to say that it will have an APS-C sensor is, well, not the whole truth. At least the size and the optional viewfinder are correct.

* APS-C sensor
* Interchangeable optics with proprietary bayonet mount
* Mirror Loose house with live-view
* Not so much larger than the GR-D cameras
* The same operation / control that the GR-D
* Electronic viewfinder accessory shoe for optional

“… a unique new compact camera in the premium class. Ricoh is a long time in development the forefront of compact cameras with very high quality. This new camera is no exception, it has both functions and properties that make it unique in the market. “

Olympus E-P2 availability informations and E-P1 deals

I collected some E-P2 availability infos:

In US and EUROPE the official availability is planned for early January. The informations we received do say that Olympus is trying to anticipate the E-P2 sales on mid-December. I just received an email from Australia where Olympus confirmed that they will have the first E-P2 ready for sale on December 15.

And the E-P2 firmware 1.0 is almost ready.

E-P2 preorder list (simply click on the shop name and you will land on the E-P2 camera page):
Amazon US, Adorama , BHphoto, Amazon DE

Amazon US has some discounted E-P1 (via Calumet Photo):
Olympus E-P1 Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (Silver Body/Black Lens) for $749.99! That’s -$50.

(FT4) UPDATED -> Ricoh camera to come with two lenses (one prime and one zoom)

As you already know Ricoh will probably be the first company to release a MicroFourThirds competitor.

Following rumor comes from a known trusted source with nickname “Batman” ;)
He says: “Ricohs camera system will start with two “lenses”, one prime, one zoom. The prime has 33mm real focal length, the zoom 5,1-15,3mm.

As I don’t have his email address I have to ask him some questions directly from this post:

1) UPDATED: Will the Ricoh camera use the same GX200 sensor or new APS-C sensor? The focal lenght of the two lenses are in contraddiction. The 33mm prime lens do suggest the Ricoh could use the APS-C sensor, the zoom focal lenght suggest the new camera will use the same GX200 sensor.

2) What will be the differences between the Ricoh camera and the E-P1/E-P2/GF1 cameras ?

3) Why are they using a “slide-in” mechanism?

UPDATE: “Batman’s” answer is “To answer your questions, the focal length i gave to you are correct, and we are talking about just one camera. Thats also the answer for question two: This is the difference ;-)
Answer three, because it is the most comfortable for this kind of camera concept.


UPDATE: business-i.jp says the new Ricoh camera will be unveiled on November 10.
