The great surprise in CP+ 2013 is reserved for Saturday, when Mr Hiraku Kawauchi, from Pentax Ricoh, together with camera development team, will perform Gangnam style dance led by Mr Psy himself! It will mark the fruition of the Pentax-Korean connection, which doesn't include Samsung at all!

Tomorrow's the formal start in Japan right? Perhaps the "serious" stuff are reserved for a later day...
TODAY. It's the dullest CP+ for the last years...

Tamron vs. Sigma vs. Nikon vs. Pentax



EDIT:
Pentax@CP+ I
Pentax@CP+ II

Here is a report about the Pentax booth.

Google Translate

Looks like they are hinting at a successor to the GRD IV in 2013. They also showed the MX-1, even though it hasn't officially been confirmed that it will be released in Japan.

Seems like a missed opportunity for Pentax. If they could've put out anything interesting they would've really stole the show.

I'm glad to see the WG series is still evolving since I may eventually just switch to that since I could have it with me more often. Some of the best pics I ever took came from my ancient 4mp Fuji Finepix anyways. (see battleship in album for example)

Do I get a life size Evangelion doll with a Q10 then?

I hate you Pentax. Seriously, announce your plans for or against a FF already, I don't care if you have no details and its 3 years out yet. I'm back to using my film cameras already at this point. All that keeps me here is the lenses I already own.

To add a little of the traditional doom and gloom, I wonder what really is the motivational and economical status of Ricoh-owned Pentax? Taking over another business takes time, but we're approaching two years of Ricoh ownership and so few announcements worth mentioning have since come from the company. The best Pentax products in the last years originate from the notorious Hoya era, like the 645D and the K-5 (I see K-5 II and s only minor updates). Ricoh takes over and brings us ... virtually nothing. If it is due to resources, the Ricoh mothership isn't obviously investing much in Pentax.

Two years of Ricoh ownership will happen on 1st October 2013. 8 more months to go
Let's panic in September, if they still won't have something nice to show (which I doubt).

Patience, everyone. Patience. Good things will be produced to those who wait. Pentax aren't known for their speed in developing their products.

And that's two years of the worst economy in decades, with natural disasters thrown in as well. But let's not wait - avoid the Christmas rush and panic NOW!

I, for one, am outraged that the Pentax M42 Lens Roadmap has not been updated in 39 years!

So the other brands are earthquake- and recession -proof then? They don't seem to be bothered by those as much as Pentax.
