I'm kinda thinking the opposite. That it'll be there but behind glass, with little fanfare. That'll be saved for the official announcement. Just supposition. Hoping someone attending will "see" either way and report to us.

But there are sites out there posting news from the conference and nothing has surfaced about Pentax at all, wouldn't one of them have stumbled on the Pentax booth by now?

Not necessarily...haven't you heard? Pentax is going out of business. What could they possibly have to offer of interest?

I'd suspect at this time you're getting just official releases with press packets and quality images produced and released by the manufacturer (based on what I've seen from a 1/2 dozen different sites covering the show). Hoping to hear someone who was actually @ the Pentax Imaging booth [ South 3 31773 ].

I thought I saw someone post a report from Pentax booth at CES on DPR which was basically saying that there were nothing to see...

To be honest, I can't see why anyone would expect to see anything new at CES. Any new products would get a proper media launch before being shown to the public. Web site like dpreview and image resource and other media will get all the details and possibly prototypes for previews. And do you think you can get to see the new cameras or lenses while those media is still under embargo and forbidden to publish any details on them?

If those products are supposed to be launched later and you are an authorized person, then yes but not for the "normal guy".

They may hint at a couple things if we ask them gently enough

But posting e.g. pictures would be stupid Pentax wouldn't ever trust them in the future.
