Or, it can be a pre-anouncement for a later announcement.

In case of Ricoh minding Pentax announcements, the right keys to press are F1, then !, followed by ESC.

One of Ricoh's mottos is 'We provoke debate'.
Whatever is to be announced, will be debatable.

I was right about K50 and K500, and about flashes, but no one knew anything about the HD Limiteds update. So don't take anyone's word for granted. K-3 and 645D II are just rough, most 'probable' estimates, but anything can happen in between.

'You're Not The Only One' ...

What has to be expected for a higher-end APS-C model?
A sensor with more megapixels (see Nikon D7100), probably a newer 24MP version from Sony.
What do the yet announced new products tell us?
The new flash units offer a constant light source for videos.
This points towards extended video capabilities and an articulating screen.

The 645DII also is overdue.
The 40MP sensor could have already been replaced by a 50MP version:
KAF-40000 - TRUESENSE 6.0-micron Full Frame CCD Platform - Technologies - Products - Full Frame CCD
KAF-50100 - TRUESENSE 6.0-micron Full Frame CCD Platform - Technologies - Products - Full Frame CCD
Maybe they have even a better solution now.

What about the omnidirectional camera?

There are also diffident rumors about another mirrorless.



You may not eliminate the possible to see the truth .

I would be surprised if we would not see at least one new camera from Ricoh at IFA...

And please, please don't let it be just a WG-4!

Except if it has APS-C sensor, of course

Nooooooo, no K-3 just yet, as I would be forced to purchase it, or any other significant upgrade to the K-30 (or even K5) range....

As it is, am going to have to get one of the WR flashes!
