Some rumors from Japan 2ch website

These rumors come from 2ch, meaning they are not *that* reliable:

[1] 1月にリコーの本気コンデジ(×高画質)
Ricoh will release a high-end compact digital camera next January.

[2] CP+前にペンタックスのド変態Kマウント機(APS-C)
New Pentax APS-C format K-mount camera, which will be awesome

[3] 新型Qは夏頃発表予定
New Q-mount camera next summer

[4] マウントが蛇腹式カメラのように前後に移動
New bellow-type camera mount (Honestly, this sounds crazy and I have no idea what this is)

[5] 噂といえば今年の初めくらいにK-60とKLというのがあったな
K-60はセンサーの画素数こそ違えどK-3譲りの機能でお買い得モデルみたいな感じだった
KLはK-60ベースでレトロデザインのモデル
K-60と言われてたのは実はK-S1だったんじゃないかな
んで、来年Kマウント40周年なんだよね
AF、AE、SR、何だったら背面液晶も省略したデジタル版MX復刻モデル、
キットレンズは40周年にかけてDA40ベースの復刻版M40
当然限定モデルだけど、これならド変態だよね
K-S1に加えてさらに変態モデルをレギュラーで出すとは思えないし、

Ricoh will release K-60 and K-L next year.
- Spec-wise, K-60 will be similar to K-3 but with a different sensor
- K-L is basically a retro version of K-60.
There will be a new MX, but it won't have AF/AE/SR and LCD screen.


Well, as I said, 2ch is typically not the best source, so take these rumors as a grain of salt.
What about 35mm FF camera? Don't we already have enough Pentax FF rumors

I am pretty sure this is almost the exact same set of rumors that came out like two years ago, dont remember the exact date.

Literally: a camera with a mount that can move back and forth like a bellow.

This is a mirrorless camera with a dual-position collapsible mount:

- retracted --> short register --> to be used with dedicated lenses
- extended --> 45.46mm register --> to be used with traditional K mount lenses.

That K-L being a K60 (K50 at that time I think) is indeed old rumors (which doesn't mean everything's false btw).

Think of it as both macro and micro AF adjustment.

I'll buy that once they have found at least 20.000 customers who are satisfied with such a system and say it is reliable.

Hmmm. So they will attempt to outdo the Nikon Df with an ultra-retro digital FF, not even with AF, auto-exposure or a rear LCD. For hard-core digital purists. Light meter sold separately.

Or maybe they are planning a Pentax version of the Sony QX1 and QX 30 'lens-camera' idea, where the camera even lacks a viewfinder or LCD and is controlled entirely wirelessly via WiFi or mobile, or something.

2ch ...

The number 5 is NOT even the rumor at all. The original poster denied it later at the last sentence, saying it wouldn't be possible. It's his unrealistic desire.

Actually... Leica already did this with Leica M Edition 60.

"Unlike other M digital models, the M Edition 60 lacks one significant feature: an LCD screen.

With the M Edition 60, Leica has created a camera that encourages users to focus on photographic fundamentals instead of technical features. As such, the LCD screen on the back of the camera has been replaced by a giant ISO dial, giving the camera a very classic look."

No offence OGL, but I am even more sure that you dont really know what Ricoh is going to do.

Could the bellow-type mean a tilt-shift lens?

I think those are mostly pretty safe rumors. Of course new cameras are in the pipeline, not to hard to say they will update the current models.
