If they have nothing more to offer than Beyblade-inspired WG's and Anime Q10s, I'll join the whining crowd
Hey, they have the pinhole lens for the Q as well, so I can remain a happy pentaxian

A pinhole lens? Seriously?! I think that answers the question in the other CP+ thread of how Pentax views its customers quite well.

Actually, it seems to be more than just a hole, it's a "small hyperfocal lens". Anyway, it's a toy for the Q.

So far I see nothing but toys announced. And even the AF360FGZ II flash is a toy, if it has the same build quality as my own AF360FGZ.

The equity analyst community seems to understand Ricoh's business plan for PRI - and they seem to like it. Problem is, we don't know Ricoh's product plan for PRI, so there's nothing to understand, nor to like or dislike.

Even if anything was to understand clearly, you wouldn't be secure with the financial's community's elusive/versatile feelings.

Here's hoping for a pinhole cap/lens for K-mount with FF-coverage...

The Special Guests are going to feel like jackasses when Pentax starts showing them 200 colours of the same old camera and Pinhole lenses.
Don't get me wrong, I like funky colours, sure. And a pinhole type lens can be fun. But neither of those deserve a show

Shurely, the glow-in-the-dark versions and the tele-pinhole will make it worth their while...

I'm still guessing two lenses, including the Tokina 12-28.

Just came up with a short but very important question for me. Why won't Pentax show what the firmware updates do? Often they say one new thing and then just "general improvements".

This is the year that I will not be disappointed with Pentax announcements!

(Because I'm not expecting anything...)
