My Raynox 250 is mounted to my primes with a 43 to 49mm step up adapter. That leaves 49mm threads at the end. I often mount a lens hood, so I don't know why you wouldn't be able to mount the ring flash.
Exactly what I do... the ringflash fits on the Raynoxes

Please let it be more than just colors. Ok, I bought the silver K-3 because of the color, but I need more than colors now.

Looks like a decent-sized booth and it's registered to Ricoh Imaging, not Ricoh Americas, so I'd guess the entire range of phtography products will be on display. It is certainly NOT a broom closet down the hall from the Restroom.

DK about anything new to be announced though.

It's CES, I guess you get the X-3 and the WG-5, the latter in 9 color combinations of purple, orange, brown and green.

I assume that can be a replacement for K-50. But I don't know. And i hope not new colors.

I don't think there are any colors left in the rainbow or color combinations they haven't already used....

And I'm still waiting for an articulating LCD screen.

Yep, they used all of them.

An articulated screen would be a must for a medium class camera, like a K-50 replacement, and even a K-5 II replacement, if we look to Canon and Nikon.

Some of those colour combinations are particularly woeful, though like motor cars, some colours and combinations suit some cameras and others don't.

Now, I have to say that I've been equivocating about the usefulness of an articulating LCD screen my joints are telling me it would be better for them during low camera setups, but my head is telling me it's another failure point for strength and WR, not to mention added bulk and cost. However, the K-3 with the promised FLUcard, I think, renders an articulated screen much less useful in those situations, although the camera perhaps needs to be secured, rather than handheld. On the other hand (literally) with a small(ish) smart phone in one hand and the K-3 in the other, you could probably manage most situations where an articulated screen would be useful, and lots of others where it wouldn't help at all.

March 2014 will tell the tale.
