Maybe, or in fact I hope so, but if the retail trade around the world already has all this info and none of it leaks over the summer from anyone anywhere then a) I'd start to have my doubts and b) it would be a world first for confidentiality.
Billy Bob says to his co-work buddy, Harvey Lee, "Have ya noticed all that Pantex, or Puntox, stuff that's filling up the warehouse?! Looks like there's gonna be some dad-burned, big surprises for them there holiday seasons ... I thunk that Pantex was doomed!!! " Yeah, right, whatever ... J

Sure, but retailers need everything planned well in advance, stock in the warehouse in time, and enough time for a good marketing plan to build and execute. Unless you're Apple, good luck with trying to get a big retailer to take your product ...
One reason Apple has entered retail and opened its own stores is to count on secrecy and surprise. If they had to rely on usual retailers, and tell them everything months and months ahead, their target audience would know all about their products months ahead, and spoiled all surprises, competitors would gain all necessary insights and started their Xeroxes way before time.

I'm surprised myself by this, but I'll vote for b).

In my opinion, it's

c) the retail world doesn't have the info yet. It's June, not August.

No camera for this Christmas season would indicate that, given two years, Ricoh was not able to come up with a new camera. Seems wrong, but who knows.

Worst case scenarios which will prove to be wrong won't help anyone. Relax, and enjoy what you already have until the new "toys" are here.
By the way, my confidence is not entirely unfounded

Nope, I don't make up BS; you will never see me talking about imaginary products, even though it would be easy to fool you (by playing safe) and maybe even get away with it after the real products are uncovered (and I find this comparison somewhat insulting, by the way).

I'm not upset, but please don't compare me with that fraud even as a joke.

Needs more K-3 (say in August so I can get oen for my birthday for myself) in a 20-24mp, ISO 50-102,800, shutter speed B, 30-1/8000, full WR, same form factor as the K5, better AF, better flash sync, and that in APS-C, with a MSRP of 1399 with an option of no AA for 100 more, and even allow a special order option of IR+ color, IR only, and full spectrum for 200 more. That would blow away the APS-C market. FF coming in later on with the same specs but 24-36mp and in time for Christmas. Yeah, that's what is needed.

So, please do enlighten us all. What is the foundation of your confidence?

I'm not trying to be popular, nor do I care about it.
Let's say I'm better than average at connecting dots, and in the same time I don't build unreasonable expectations (because I try to understand Pentax' capabilities, rather than acting on my wishes).

Let's just say that Pentax will continue to produce new camera and lens products, as it has been doing for the past few decades, and that regardless of members' optimism (and despite the degree of pessimism), this will occur and generate the usual amount of praise and complaint on the range of new products released each year.
