Ricoh GXR mount for Leica M-lenses product announcement is out!

Ricoh has been talking about the GXR mount for Leica M-series lenses being in the works, but today they have made it official with an official product announcement! Its formal name is GXR MOUNT A12, with no mention of a lens-mount, which may (or may not) suggest that they are only planning to release a "mount" for Leica M. It will come out in September with a starting price of $650.

The A12 is a 12mp APS-C sensor but according to page #1 of the dpreview preview this is not the same sensor they used in their previous 12mp A12 APS-C sensor + lens modules. The GXR MOUNT A12 has no anti-aliasing filter and redesigned microlens layout [corrected!]

+ four page preview including 27 real-world sample images at d-preview
+ hands-on with the included "lens checker" at DC Watch Impress [computer translated] (towards the bottom of the page)
