  • Newly developed focal plane shutter
  • No model name yet for the module
  • Expected Release Fall 2011

Rumors for a new Micro Four Thirds module for GXR have been floating around and there is a very good chance that such unit will be announced later in 2011. At that point Ricoh is not part of the Micro Four Thirds supporting companies.
