Epson to resurrect R-D1 rangefinder with new R-D1x?
Epson Japan has announced the R-D1x, but while there are some improvements including a 2.5-inch LCD screen and compatibility with SD-HC, the maker has stayed with the 6.1MP resolution CCD of the original R-D1 and R-D1s.
As you can see from the photo above, there's an optional handgrip but what you can't see is that the fold-out and twisting screen of the orginal is now fixed in position.
According to the Epson Japan site, the new model will be available from the 09 April. No word as yet whether it will be available in Europe or the US.
