Contemporary design isn't for everyone, but it does say something if Ricoh is hiring a western designer for its new line of cameras. What precisely, I don't know, but it's certainly not apathy toward the brand.

I highly doubt it. That's definitely a Japanese design esthetic -- not one of a guy who lives in London.

Why couldn't they use a shorter register distance to keep the new system compact, but offer a simple adapter to make up the difference and allow legacy k mount lenses to be used?

Thanks, maybe time to link to an image of the Talby phone referred to in the rumor:

Actually, not that bad for a pre-iPhone design ...

An adapter always makes the combination flimsy and way less rugged. So I applaud a MILC camera with a proper K-mount registration distance. It still remains to be seen if the rumor is credible though.

Soo
It looks like the design can be really good and thus the camera will make a lot of hype.

IMO a phone where the mouthpiece doesn't curve toward my mouth is misdesigned and non-ergonomic. Aside from that, I just don't like the styling, it's very industrial looking. Are you sure he isn't German?

Not on my wish list

I've just replaced my K20D with a K5.

I found the K5 to be uncomfortably small in my not overly large hands. I'd say my hands are average for a man.

Yesterday I received my D-BG4 grip and to say that it has transformed the way the K5 handles would be an gross understatement.

For me, this rumoured K01, plus the 'Q', the NEX and their ilk are just not physically feasible for me.

It seems possible that these new designs are aimed at the fairer sex, and the Asian market.

I hope Pentax don't lose sight of the fact that Caucasian males also take photos.

And please, please, don't look for any racial innuendo in the above sentence because there isn't any.
