I get the feeling that Pentax has gotten even more anal under Ricoh.

Product not ready = no release
Not caring what the market or user base thinks.

When its out, its a winner in its category.
Eg. Q7; GR; K3; 645Z


So hopefully, this Photokina we hit the 'Winner' part and not the 'Anal' part of their project cycle

Photokina and the christmas season are aligned.

There's no chance Ricoh spent a bunch of money to purchase Pentax and then completely abandons them a few years later. We'll have some splashes at Photokina, probably at least one camera and a few lenses. It just might not be the camera(s) you or I want.

Personally I think the banner headline will be a FF camera and a couple of lenses for it. But we'll see.

It will not be the camera I want. But that's fine, I already have a camera which is better than what I need

I can confirm from discussions with my relations / RI France, that there will be interesting novelties at this Kina.
I guess this will be more than new lenses or weather-proofed Q-z

I agree but only partially. When it comes to bodies - everything is great, but when we consider lenses... well, situation is not so good (cordially speaking).

My hope is that they won't launch too much, too often - so I won't get bankrupt

SO are you (cordially) saying that whatever optical engineers Hoya didn't take with the medical divisions are now working for Tamron and Sigma?

What's the problem with that? Take the Tamron 150-600, slap HD coating on it, sell it as the D FA 150-600 at a $200 premium.
