Thoughtfulness doesn't imply making a lot of noise, nor speed. Think of them as shogi players - always looking at the best possible move from the (limited) options.

We'll see about CP+, but I also doubt they'll have anything earth shattering But is there anything that we'll consider earth shattering?

I expect at least a preview of the tc and the two new lenses, and maybe also a glimpse (preview behind glass?) of the new 645D?

What I'd like to know is if they'll have a 2 stage announcement, or it will be a relatively disappointing spring.
Either way, there's something I want to buy and it will be announced soon (before CP+). I guess

Kunzite, I think you know something. Or is just a hunch?

Yes, Kunzite.... Can you elaborate? Is it a Pentax product? Camera body?

I don't expect much from this year's CP+. As one of Canon's top executives recently noticed, the market condition for DSLR has completely changed, which indicates that the bubble year is over for every camera makers. They have few choices but being cautious not to get less profitable models out for the market. Hopefully, next year's CP+ will be exciting with the replacement of the D800 and the 5DIII.

This is the kind of economy and market that an intrepid maunfacturer can exploit - when the competition is retrenching, liquidatiing dated inventory and squeezing dealers.

Just sayin'

I think with global economies on the mend, you will probably see growth as more people travel, have children, get married, do other things, or just have extra disposable income to pour into their hobby that inspire camera purchases.

Yes the market for camera's is still shrinking, but no idea by how much this year. It could be again as last year a hard drop down the chart.

Keyword: includes. It also includes the financial leasing business and who knows what other.
They couldn't possibly sell over 1 billion USD worth of GRs.
Last year "Others" also included CCTV systems (cameras and lenses), mainly sold in Japan.

It sort of shouldn't be since they are a publicly traded company
Reporting requirements are tougher in the U.S., but you will typically find only revenue, not operating margin, reported for separate business units or by geographical region. The market intelligence business makes a lot of money by getting customers to supply more detailed information which is then combined with information from other customers, fudged a bit to keep true figures confidential, and sold to competitors, so the executive branch can have more detailed reports and plans. It's a high stakes poker game where the value of legally and illegally obtained information is never guaranteed.
