For Ricoh Fan Boys like me, the most obvious news is the finally officially announced 28mm module
Ricoh has kept away from offering a macro lens this time, presumably trying to squeeze a wide angle and macro in a small size would probably make it too expensive. The regrettable bit about this new module is it would have been wonderful if it was a 24mm equivalent and aperture of f2.0, especially since there is no image stabilization for low light hand held occasions.
Also another note to Ricoh, it would be good to let us manually control the built in ND filter. Please?
The last word about this module is I want it NOW.
