My predictions is they won't release a K-300 type camera because their plan is to drop the K-30 to 600 by the time they announce a K-5 replacement so that the K-30 is the entry-level camera.
And leave the cheap entry level to the more successful folks...

Yeah.

I don't see that happening. Entry-level cameras are so important for camera companies because they get people to buy into the system, which increases their market for bringing out additional lenses, bodies, etc. So either the K-30 will be their entry-level model, or a K-300 will be released to take on that role. I think the latter is more likely.

I just hope that whatever they do, it's an absolute grandslam. They sure are alienating a lot of their current user base with their jerking around of lens prices and some good will would go a long way.

9 new cameras? An LX-D! A "transformer" camera with interchangeable accessories that can form 9 different cameras in total!

...I wish...

I was applying a technique called "sarcasm". And of course, you're right .

Maybe, 9 products...But Ricoh GRDV and CX7 are 2 new cameras. It seems to me, it could be 9 announcements, but more products.

DA560 and 645 DFA90/2.8 were announced on February, 2012, already...

Don't forget the P&S cameras, they count as camera releases too.

Yeah... I figured that out a little too late. Sometimes I act first and think second.

One of the cameras to be announced will be the K02, a replacement for the mirrorless K01.

a) it will have a new lens mount, smaller than the K. 3 new lenses will be announced for the mount.
b) it will be able to use K mount lenses via an announced electronic capable adapter
c) Sensor will be APS 16mp
d) An accessory EVF will be available for an extra charge
e) The mirrorless body will have a hotshoe which can be used for the optional EVF or a flash. A port
will be available for off-camera flash.
f) A port will available for shutter actuation via cable.

And this is all purely speculation?!
