From the Tokyo Camera Style archives- That time in 2012 when Map Camerain Shinjuku had both a full case of used Ricoh GR cameras and samples of each model for customers to handle, inviting them to “Touch the GR”. While this display and inventory no longer exists, it was nice while it lasted.

NEW MS OPTICAL Lens- - the 35mm f1.4 Reiroal lens.
This Reiroal lens, finished in platinum chrome, is a collaboration between Map Camera and MS Optical- it comes with an original vented lens hood, too. Certainly there will be a market for such a tiny and fast 35mm lens.
Interestingly, the name of this quirky little lens, picked by Map Camera staff, is a reference to “Aomori Elegy”, a poem written by Kenji Miyazawa in the 1920s.
This kit- one of only 100- was produced to commemorate the new Leica boutique in Kyoto. My friend Koichi Akagi has already stopped by- check out his shot of the front of the shop. There are more images of the store and the Geisha-attended opening here at DejiCame Watch.
