Ricoh announces RICOH LENS A16 24-85mm F3.5-5.5
Ricoh today announced the development and release of RICOH LENS A16 24-85mm F3.5-5.5, the fifth camera unit in the GXR interchangeable unit camera system. The new RICOH LENS A16 24-85mm F3.5-5.5 brings together a newly developed 24-85 mm wide-angle zoom lens, an APS-C size CMOS sensor, and the proven Smooth Imaging Engine IV to create a unit with high image quality, high power of expression, and high flexibility.
The newly developed RICOH LENS A16 24-85mm F3.5-5.5, features a 9-group, 11-element configuration. The utilization of three double-sided aspherical lenses as well as high-refraction lenses effectively reduces various types of distortion across the entire zoom range. The result is high resolution and imaging power from edge to edge.
The Camera unit features a 23.6 mm×15.7 mm (APS-C size) 16M CMOS sensor. In combination with the image processing engine Smooth Imaging Engine IV, this image sensor makes it possible to shoot high-quality images with smooth tonal gradations, as well as low noise and high-resolution. The configuration of nine rounded aperture blades enables both highly precise aperture settings and beautiful bokeh.
New options added:-A newly designed lens hood (LH-2) especially for this camera unit.
A lens cap (LC-3) that opens and closes simultaneously with the movement of the lens. It does not need to be removed when shooting. A wrapping sheet (WS-1) that can wrap the GXR when the camera unit, external viewfinder, and other options are attached.
