Ricoh rumor on new A16 M module

Not much chatter about this yet here. But the narrative seems to be that the A12 sensor is being discontinued by Sony, so Ricoh is forced to (eventually) upgrade all APS units to the A16. The GXR-Mount and upcoming APS zoom will both be using the A16. I have no idea what will happen to the current A12 28mm and 50mm - when they will be upgraded.

I, too, hope there is a new A16 prime in 2012. A lot of people want a lot of different things, though. Me, I'd be happy with either a 21mm, 24mm or 75/85mm. Probably prefer the wide end, since with the GXR-Mount I can already easily replicate a 75mm prime.

Has anyone seen any further information about an A16 M module? The A12 M is unavailable but suppliers like B&H show no information about an A16. They still list the A12 as though they are expecting a shipment, same with Adorama and Amazon. I would hesitate to buy an A12 M if the A16 is just around the corner.

That A16 is the zoom lens that has already been announced.

What the rumor was about, was a replacement for the A12 M Mount module.
