Well, but this focus assist seems to be a nice thing to have, cant argue with that....

But i dont think that they will show anything more there, i mean what is the point in showing something NOT, well ok it could be a very early prototyp and they dont want customer to see it, so they will annouce it on the last day

I agree, today's opening to the public day.

There won't be any presentation, either from Pentax nor Ricoh.

And i doubt they would get any further consideration in making some kind of aloof anouncement.

BrendanPK is there providing live coverage for our news site and just reported spotting something at the Pentax booth that was quickly hidden behind a back. It looked rugged and mirrorless maybe and might have been sporting what looked to be a kmout pancake or limited lens.
Hey, I think I figured this out. They managed to grab a Fuji X1 Pro prototype and no wonder don't want anybody to see it!

2012 is the anniversary of the first Pentax DSLR ; 60 Y.O.
If i was a Pentax marketing guy, i will try to remind people than they are the first of the big japanese camera companies to adopt that system. To remind people how innovative is (was ?) that brand.
Ooh, I want me one of those 1952 *IST-DS cameras!

No, I guess we'll have to endure another four weeks of "I'm outta here! Pentax is doomed!" until CP+ - I would be really surprised if they don't announce anything there (or before).

Yes, but (disregarding that someone might have insider info ) that was based on previous experience, and this year's CES is different, since it includes PMA.

Normally announcement are done on the opening day or before, otherwise it does not make sense. This mean nothing will be announced 100 %

This is a good chance for a really cool camera launch. but I would bet on any really significant models being a September announcement. Photokina is really where the big announcements usually come from everyone. PMA has been a struggling show for years. CES has usually been about P?s (and still is looking at the vast majority of announcements) CP= is where the 645D was announced. I expect some new stuff at CP+ and the really big stuff at Photokina Ricoh has only owned Pentax since October so their imprint won't show in any serious way this early.
Hoya likely didn't invest a lot in R&D once the sale was confirmed. That and all the natural disaster issues impacts release dates.

One thing I am certain of is K mount is going to be around for a good while yet. I'm with Adam here.

I am interested to see what this rugged camera is (it sure isn't the GXR m mountor )

PMA@CES would have been a great way of making inital impressions and building excitement of the new Pentax under Ricoh ownership. All that would have been needed was a K-r replacement being announced or something under glass to show what they are thinking mid-term. Just something to show that there is some life in the PRIC. From the showing PRIC has at PMA@CES I am even more sure of holding off purchasing anything from PRIC until I see what direction they are going with the company. This is not the feeling a company wants to give their customers after a big show.

Still being a Pentaxian I have hope of seeing something at the next show, which is CP+ in a month. Still I will expect the stuff that is really Ricoh inspired to be shown at Photokina in the fall.

thing is CES is not a big show for imaging by any stretch (usually all P/S and video Cameras) - it's more about TV and computers than anything else. PMA is trying to revitalize itself by partnering. CP+ and Photokina are the 2 big shows
Fuji has been big at CES for a long time in P/S and they used it for the X100 and now Xpro because it puts all the focus on them since little else important is coming out there
