No but Pentax is considdering naming the next top off the line camera the K-rh

I admit... the first time I read that I thought you were poking fun @ Rice-High... and a died a little inside. Luckily I figured it.

How about using terms like 2nd or 3rd quarter..etc as there is a whole Southern Hemisphere that has inverted seasons.
1st winter, 2nd winter, 3rd winter and 4th winter is fine with me!

Looks like a compact version of the K-01 with no low pass filter.

Interesting design differences on those watches....

Maybe this is a subtle hint that the Pentax K-mount brand will be for modern looking and performing DSLRs and Ricoh GR for more retro, smaller, classic models?

No, it's simply a comment on the weather :-)

Something like that
Joking aside, it's good to see a proper launch (Pentax Japan, both Japanese and English, and Pentax USA for example had information about it), and marketing at work (at least in Japan).

Seems Ricoh is indeed in the watch business. Didn't know that..

They just did, yesterday. Should they do it daily, would that be enough, or maybe twice a day?
