On Ricoh to make 16MP APS-C GXR zoom module news story (136 comments in total)

fzand: Ricoh's strategy of creating complex modules that include everything on a relatively dumb chasis is an interesting idea, but it also presents a big cost and complexity challenge that everytime you want to buy a lens you are practically buying a new camera with all its issues regarding firmware, etc.

My point is that this is a challenging idea. The problem that I was stating is that with each lens and sensor, you probably have to have a different firmware, also what problem are they solving here, if you want the full DSLR range, as this APS module competes with, then you are going to buy additional lenses (and sensors) to get the full range of prime, zoom and macro lenses. you end up carrying just as much in your camera bag as you would with other body and lens options. I like to "invest" in lenses and have the option of upgrading the body as sensor technology improves. Here you are frozen in time with the coupled lens and sensor.
