Well this year at CES in Vegas, Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation has two booths, one in each building. Not really large booths when compared to others manufactures.

So CP+ is a big step up for Pentax. Good.

As far as I can see, the CP+ booth is the same size and maybe the same location as it was in previous years. When I went in 2013, it seemed rather of tucked away at the back. I don't think it hints at anything terms of product releases.

I heard a rumor about the announcement of a new design for the lens's front and rear caps.
That was clever.

Last year.

This years CP+ should prove to be very interesting. In the past Pentax hasn't always had the best representation at trade shows. This year's CP+ should be better overall. Their booth, while not as large as Canon or Nikon, is respectable in size and on par with Fuji. Now, what will they be announcing?
Perhaps another company name change?

I don't know about before acquiring Pentax, but Ricoh-Pentax hasn't timed releases for the shows. They announce when they announce. They'd be overshadowed by the bigger makers anyhow. There was a small flurry of announcements in the couple months BEFORE Photokina '14, and they showed some stuff they were working on, and Pentax/France said the FF was coming. This caused all sorts of (the usual) predictions of doom - and immediate forecasts that there would be announcements at CP+.

The discounts and product cycle suggest we're due for some new bodies, but I doubt CP+ will dictate when they are announced.
I agree with the above quote. Don't expect anything and what does come is a bonus

My guess: a Ricoh WG 5!

Well... there actually have been rumors (and actual news following them) like that about Canon, haven't there?

Canon Announces New Lens Caps!

I'd like to see Pentax buy whatever IP they need to from Op/Tech and start using *their* style of lens mount cap, even if they only use it on WR/AW lenses. It would fit in with their compact/weather-resistant business model, and save me $10 when I buy a new lens. lol. They could do branded versions of the double lens mount cap for connecting pairs of limited lenses (they could even machine them out of aluminum to match the quality of the lenses!)

sarcasm
A tongue of which the user speaks of something the complete opposite of what the user means. It often has the best comedic value.

Ex. 2:
"Is your car stuck in the mud?"
"No, no, of course not. I'm only practicing how to spray mud using my tires.

The world would be a better place when Pentaxians would manage to talk in a non-sarcastic way about "their" brand. It's as if we chose this brand just to ridicule it.
