It's A Good Day In The Neighborhood...

tra la la, la la! I work at the local airport and see/meet celebrities all the time. Today, it was someone in a light blue polo with R-I-C-O-H on the front. The conversation went like this:

Me:

Didn't you guy's just takeover Pentax?

Ricoh Employee(R.E.):

Yes.

Me:

Is there a new model above the K-5 coming, knida/sorta?

R.E.:

Hesitates..Yes.

Me:

Soon?

R.E.

Don't buy anything in the next few months

Me:

Swivel screen?

R.E.

Yes.

Me:

Sony 24MP Sensor?

R.E.

Hesitates...Yes.

If I'm lying, I'll give my '5 away. I didn't think to ask about lenses. I'm not sure why he disappeared so quickly.

Well I have no plans on buying anything before spring, so that would be good.

Now the question is, was he talking about the Sony A77 (APS-C) or A900 (FF) sensor?

Well, there go our hopes of better marketing if Ricoh employees are telling people not to buy anything. Exciting news otherwise, though!

I am surprised that you didn't ask about FF...I thought everybody will ask this question, just as what we saw from this board

Isn't there a "No Violence" agreement required for registration?

Oh, well. The 24Mp sensor is inferior to 16Mp in still photo.

Well, if the person was wearing a Ricoh polo shirt, it must be true!
