If #1 is accurate then the prototype is already available. Someone must have it by now.
Yes. The prototype is real thing.

FA31, 43 and 77 are in production. As for new version of FA Limited -- no any info.
They says that FA Limited will be supplemented with new DFA lenses.


As I understand 645DII is postponed because of FF camera. IMO.

The main intrigue - will we see FF at Photokina 2014 or earlier?

No any concrete information, as usual...
But, there are some common info.

As long as DFA lenses premier before the camera, it should satisfy people.

"645DII will be different from 645D". As I understand - it will be new body, controls and new "stuff" inside.

I can't guarantee that all such information are 100% truth. But I share this info with Pentaxforums.

And it's real official answers of Ricoh representative in real official thread.

Anyway, to say honest, some of this info are already posted here. Rumor about new 2.8 zoom. DA zoom limited is under development (I got this info from Ricoh Pentax facebook this year).
FF is under development too.

We could consider the answers from Ricoh Russia as such kind of confirmation.

And they're in line with previous information (e.g. the interviews with Mr. Kitazawa).

There are only two trustworthy lines of Pentax communication on the globe, the Russians and the Chinese.

I might have to up my donation to the piggybank. At the very least I can ignore whatever FF/MF rumors are happening in Canikonustan and just focus on shooting with my new old 645 film body, instead of endlessly hitting the refresh button here....

All the electronics from the K-3 and a CMOS-sensor I guess.

?????????? Google

1. FF will be next year. Not later than Photokina 2014. Maybe, on spring or summer, 2014.
2. New DFA lenses will be offered. New 2.8 zooms will be made.
3. New Limited Zoom will be real.
4. New WR lenses will be launched.
5. K-01 is failed because of design. Mirrorless cameras - Ricoh will offer something new.
6. New 645D will be later. It will be different from 645D. It was plans to launch 645DII this year, but the situation is changed.
7. SMC DA LIMITED are discontinued.
Thanks for the info!

Can I say I love Ricoh?

Dear Ricoh, my money is ready for this.
