Pentax-Ricoh Russia Answers: FF and Ricoh future

?????????? Google
Pay attention!
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.

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

If this is true, i'm sure all the Pentaxian gear-heads will start loving Ricoh.

If all of that is true - if even HALF of that is true - I will feel entitled to add to my Signature, "SEE? Told 'Ya!!"

I think FF will come soon because they release both the K-3 and K-3 Limited together. If they would release the limited later and the FF has come out no one would buy it. Well just a thought. Hope it's right though.

Not that I need a FF but I would be happy for Pentax sake.

8. Whatever will be. WIll be.

#5 raises more questions than it answers. It infers a redesigned mirrorless K-mount 'K-02'. Does this mean those supposed new lenses projecting into the camera body will eventuate? But does "from Ricoh" mean Ricoh-branded? So not a K-02, but a GXR successor, maybe M-mount? Maybe that supposed LX-D new 'A-mount' after all?

These points are as many of us expect. Now they also need to materialize

These are the two key points.
No. 2 sounds like preparation for No. 1.

If people are complaining about the price of the new Ltd's, what will they say if a new DA version of the '31/'43 and '77 becomes available...and is better?
