So, who is at the CP+?

I saw DPReview already started reporting from the show.
Anyone around here was at the show already? Or planning to go?
Any news from the Ricoh Imaging exhibition stand?

What's the difference in terms to Ricoh Imaging?
They only speak Klingon anyway.

I visited there quickly today. As a regular visitor I did not see anything new except the already announced 1.4 rear converter.

I quickly tested K-3 and 1.4x tc together with DAstar 200 and 300 lenses.

Can't say anything about image quality but focusing was good with the both lenses.

I'm at the show too. A quiet one from Ricoh/Pentax, but still fun overall.

I would guess Albert Siegel will be doing some of the coverage, as in the previous years... I gather he is based in Japan and fluent in the language.

We're using a native speaker for the interview since it will be in Japanese.

Here is an interview with Hajime Murano of Ricoh Imaging for an Indian 'Better Photography'. Done during the CP+ ??
Anyway, interview at least casts more light on one interesting point, and that is the possible development course of the new compacts.
Ricoh will focus on hi-end compacts, waterproof compacts, and hi-zoom compacts.

Seems reasonably where P&S still has a reason to be.
