Epson updates retro R-D1

Epson has updated its retro-styled digital camera, the R-D1. First released in 2004, the camera mimics rangefinders from the 1960s and '70s, but is actually based on the modern Bessa R2. This extends to the Color Skopar lens, although the new R-D1s comes with a 28mm f/3.5 lens rather than the R2's 50mm f/2.5, and uses a Leica L mount rather than an M. Upgrades over the R-D1 include a 6.1-megapixel sensor and a reduction in weight to 5.7 ounces. This technology does not come cheap however, as the camera is selling in Japan for the equivalent of $2,566. A variety of secondary lenses are available. [via Impress Watch]
