New Ricoh SLR AF Patent

http://egami.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2015-05-13 (Translated)

To improve AF sensitivity in the dark.

HD/DA18-50 and DA18-55 are Having the Same Optical Formula

 


So, they are the same optically, but only the allowable zoom ranges are different.

(in Chinese)

Someone at the Chinese Xitek forum hinted that he had tested the beta unit of the FF and told the following:

1. The new machine is not 42MP.

2. The AF speed is very high.

3. There are many AF points than ever.

4. SR Super-resolution mode now works handheld.

5. The result of the handheld super-resolution mode is good and it works!

6. Overall better experience than the D810.
