The Ricoh Singlex was introduced in 1962. It was the first Ricoh S reflex camera with interchangeable lenses. At this time, demand for export market was strong and Ricoh wasn't ready to produce his own reflex camera. The Singlex was a further development of the Nikkorex F made by Mamiya for Nikon. The original Singlex is the only Ricoh SLR having a Nikon F lens mount, the ensuing models having a 42mm screw mount throughout most of the next decade. The rarest version is black, with special all black 55/1.4. The Ricoh Singlex was also sold as Sears SL 11.
Mamiya sold the camera design to Ricoh, who produced it as the Ricoh Singlex, complete with Nikon F mount. The Ricoh Singlex was produced in the same Mamiya factory as the Nikkorex F. The external clip-on CdS meter sold by Ricoh is specific. The same with Rikenon F-Mount lenses that are totally diferents than the Nikkor lenses. The standard lens for the Singlex is the Rikenon 1:1.4 f=55mm.
