This is interesting:
Quick translation: The blog writer has been in communication with Ricoh service to see if it is possible to replace the 12MP sensor in A12 modules (including the M mount module) with the new 16MP sensor shipping in the new zoom.
They said yes.
I've been following this in another forum; on follow up Ricoh told him that a cost couldn't be offered off hand - the camera would have to be sent in for a free estimate. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me but there you go.
Anyone with closer ties to Ricoh want to check this out for veracity and maybe obtain a real cost? I could live without my module for a while to have this done!
