So I guess we can assume that since Pentax is not addressing the Q series this year at the show they have abandoned it? Did they even show up this year?

Pentax is at Photokina with a booth. Apparently they aren't showing anything new. Nothing new at all in any of their camera line ups. Guess it will be next year. Don't think this means the Q is dead at all.

As of now, the best news is that Q batteries (D-Li68) are being used in the latest WG-M2,
so we won't necessarily have to defect to Fuji for replacements.

Meanwhile, on the Ricoh website,
the Q system (QS-1, lenses, and accessories) shares the same status as the Ricoh GXR S10 module,
namely not being marked in red as "Discontinued".

The 09 tele-macro is still "planning," as of February 2016, for "2016 or later",
but that "might change without notice".
