Ricoh is offering the new combination of a GXR camera body and the S10 24-72 mm F2.5-4.4 VC camera unit. The Ricoh GXR S10 Kit is the second GXR and camera unit kit product, following the GXR+P10 KIT, which is already on sale.
The Ricoh GXR is a new camera system where a photographer can change a lens that is already paired with an image sensor suitable and optimized for that particular zoom range. The camera body itself does not contain the sensor.
The GXR S10 Kit promises improved performance with a 1/1.7 type CCD sensor with 10 megapixels. The new kit will be available in Europe starting July 16, 2010 at a retail price of â‚¬600 or about $750.
