What Do You Think We Will See On CP+ 2014

What do you guys think Ricoh will announce on the upcoming CP+ 2014 show? Several rumors had been floating around the forum.
1. a leaked photo a the HD TC 1.4x
2. camera bodies K-60, K-600 and KL retro
3. update to the 3 FA Ltd lenses to HD coating
4. 2 new lenses 135-380 4-5.6 & 18-70 2.8-4.5

What do you guys think we will see?

I think we will see a new camera or two and a whole bunch of hype from the press. I can wait.

I hope you are right about the camera bodies.

I think Pentax will bring out a tamagotchi camera that millions of teenage Japanese school girls will go nuts over...

They'll bring it out in an exciting range of unseen before colours...

The rest of us will also get caught up in the excitement of it and buy it and then spend hours every day caring for our needy tamagotchi camera... Oh wait we already spend hours every day caring for our cameras!!

I'd like to see a successor to the k-01. I know it's not high on their list of priorities though.

I think we're probably gonna see more on that TC. Maybe a lens or two. Camera bodies? Maybe one or two.

A K-02 with a different design definitely.

I doubt we will see it soon but I hope to see a next generation K-01. I think it would have been a success if it had been priced as an entry level camera instead of a mid level.

I suspect CP+ will be pretty boring in Ricoh Imaging's booth, although they will splash it with hundreds of colourful Q7s.
Maybe one new camera body based on K-3 ... just maybe. Perhaps a couple of lenses and possibly a TC.
Nothing more than that.

Internals downscaled from K-3, coupled with a new imaging processor and a crippled buffer.
Something we get when cross-breeding a K-50 with a K-3.

Yeah, something with the new sensor, new AF & image processor. Little lighter on other features.

What about the "retro" K-L rumor? Has anyone heard or seen anything else that might indicate this is forthcoming? I'm most interesting in this particular rumor although I suspect it is just that... a rumor.

Dunno. I think the Nikon retro thing is pretty ugly. I like the k-01 much better & would prefer to see its successor.

I'd love to see a K-01 successor based on this:

I'm a sucker for the old SLR design. I do love my K-01 alot more than I expected. The design really does work for me, and aside from no EVF I think it was a fantastic model.
