I'm scratching my head as to what could be the purpose of that. Quick access to different film speeds? The MF crowd worked that out decades ago with interchangeable backs.
Here's the classic image:

Yes.

We may need to start a new one when it's finally time for Photokina.

That would be a smarter idea. Of course this one is going to be silly.. Photokina is 2 months out.. and FF has been flogged to death, revived, then flogged to death again so many times it has received it's own forum for nonsense threads. It seems we have covered all ground at what possibly could be released at Photokina already. So threads like these will always turn to nonsense!

But I'd rather see silly nonsense than serious nonsense .. which tends to be par for the course here.

When Photokina comes we can get back to discussing serious nonsense.. the kind that really matters. And by 'really matters' I mean still doesn't matter but we can put our serious faces on at least.

On an actual, serious note - it seems Ricoh has either absolutely nothing new to show at Photokina or the component supply manufacturers, NDA testers and marketing people are located in close proximity to a black hole.

There was a new member post today. Title was

Pentax 645Z [Edited: on finding link I noticed 'Pentax' was in the title]

the first and only post was

120mm F.4Macro.

Go figure.

K-mount counts. Q and 645 are so much less relevant for long-time Pentax users. And given the same, say, $450 tag, I'll rather buy a lens for K-mount than a lens for Q mount.
K-mount is the serious bread and butter of this poor brand.

I agree but 3 mounts is Ricoh's Pentax inheritage.
Btw, when you look at Fuji's or Samsung's last APS-C products, we should already have new f/1.4 or f/1.2 fixed lenses...
Ricoh would be irresponsive not to look/respond at it's most dangerous concurrence...

One of those mounts is a funny mount. Q is fun. But I don't want to rely on their sense of fun, and my sense of funny spending, to capture memories that matter more than "having fun".
As for the f1.4 lenses, good luck with that. I can see only a 50mm / 1.4 — and only if there is an FF announced.
