A nice lineup for 2012 would be a K-s (intro level), K-5 mark II and full-frame K-1. Now to wait and see...

I know Pentax-Ricoh have a stand at CES but do we actually know whether they are going to announce anything?

For example, do we know of a press conference date?

I suppose we could work out a possible product announcement date by looking at when other camera manufacturers have press conferences/releases planned. You don't want to announce something at the same time as a competitor.

To a certain degree I can see the wisdom in announcing a product that's not going to be out for a few months (or publicly stating that they are actively developing FF, APS-C mirrorless etc). At the moment Pentax-Ricoh have a lot to prove. Ricoh may view a pre-announcement as beneficial because it backs up all the nice words from just after the Pentax aquisition, even if an actual product isn't forthcoming.

The Samsung presentation livestream just ended: TV, P&S camera, tablet, laptop. Not a word of the long awaited NX20! What the heck? Perhaps they found out about the Fuji announcement in the same segment beforehand and decided to cancel, postpone, redesign, whatever?
maybe they are waiting for CP+

As an ex-Alphaphile I couldn't let that one pass without a

Fuji needs to debug those first two X models before a lot of their faithful re-up - the blooming/orb X10 issue infuriated folks who spent plenty to get weird results. I have their F550, really happy with what's inside (though I paid far below their price for it) - but oh that lens, I'm tempted to put nail polish on it to see if I can outdo the original coating. As long as I consider the kaleidoscopic flares an always-on art filter, though, I'm OK.
The X-Pro might be a bomb. Fuji has said they listened to the X100 users and addressed the complaints and bugs. Hopefully that is the case. As buggy as the X100 is people are still buying them faster than Fuji can make them.

Fuji makes all the glass for Hassy and has made a lot of premium glass in the past. We will have to see if the new glass meets expectations.

If Ricoh were interested enough, it's time to rescue that dying piece and give it new life in a new body - err... RiKoTax? =))

Isn't this a Pentax Forum, and not a FujiFilm X-Pro1 fan club? Seriously, people... :ugh:
