Rare 28mm pancake Ricoh lens on eBay.
Posted By: Arrvon, 08-07-2014, 03:06 PM

Never knew this lens existed until I saw it on eBay the other day. I just wanted to post it here in case anyone has been lusting after it or trying to find one. Plastic build, but unique for sure. Don't know much about it at all.

Looks nice... Wonder how it performs. Would love something like that for APSC.

It is a full frame lens I think, and a proper K mount so here is nothing stopping you from using it on a apc dslr...

I was able to find a couple obscure examples of pics taken with the lens on some Japanese websites but obviously I couldn't make both much of what they were saying about it.

Ricoh made two different XR 28/3.5. The first is a conventional design (reputably made by Pentax in the late 1970s) and then there is the pancake with the aspherical element. I believe the pancake was made in the mid-1990s.

Congrats! Seriously considered buying it myself too. Not too expensive for a very nice little pancake lens! Please post some pics when you get it. Would love to see them.
