Some of us seem to have disproportionate expectations regarding a basic marketing trick concerning an already disclosed Pentax flagship...
Plus, i get the appropriate pseudonyme to say that

I see the link to the Ricoh US countdown page has been broken. Does that mean there'll be no lunar eclipse over the US?

New LINK (they changed /645z/ to just /z/ ).

But it's only got to twelve pages! Good grief! Nobody's even mentioned a cheese sandwich yet (until now, that is)
The whole rumors side is just that.. a bunch of useless rumors.. anyone can build a rumor. Well, I guess I shouldn't say useless.. as it does provide a low level amount of amusement.

For instance, *ahem* I heard that Ricoh would like to make a FS (Full Slice) camera that looks like a Cheese Sandwich... for street shooting.. no one will ever notice you are snapping people/daily life photos when your camera appears to be a giant cheese sandwich.

Excellent! Some real thinking outside the square there, especially as I read a report of a London photographer who's been criticised in some quarters for taking photos of women eating on the London Underground. Who could criticise a cheese sandwich for taking a picture of a ham salad roll?

That's good. I'd hate to see the lunar eclipse excised from so many of our friends on the other side of the pond. The possibilities for restoration of the Mayan calendar apocalypse might have been concerning.

Well the Cheese Sandwich camera is not meant to be used in a creepy manner... but, instead, to alleviate people's stress from behaving differently when a camera is around... to relax people.. catch them walking or conversing without being stressed... who would get upset or self aware over seeing a cheese sandwich??

Why a cheese sandwich camera? What about photographers who are lactose intolerant? I'd say ham sandwich, but then vegetarians might be upset. We need to think this through!

the Pentax q7 price drop of a $100,00 is a sign that

We may KNOW it's the 645, but somehow I think that there's something that will surprise everyone when it's released. Don't know what, just a hunch.

Agreed. But I think it's fairly safe to conclude that the Z is a camera that won't make the Q7 obsolete
