Epson has updated its R-D1 digital rangefinder, a camera it discontinued two years ago.

The R-D1xG has been launched onto the Japanese market and is said to include a 2.5in LCD screen and ‘removable handgrip’.

The 6MP model is understood to shoot in raw and JPEG format and is compatible with Leica M lenses.

The story was reported on the Wired website earlier today.
