Ricoh's Booth at CP+ 2015

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?

Hmm. The same size as Fujifilm's booth. Between the two of them, they have Canon, Nikon and Panasonic outflanked, if not in a pincer movement! Sony, however, is an outlier next to Casio, but will bear the brunt of a full-frontal assault (we are talking photography, here…)

I suspect all we'll see is the new zoom in production form, maybe more on the longer zooms.

That is it, no one knows what will be announced, and my guess is that there will be no leaks from Pentax.

But we typically do have leaks.

You had to go and actually say it, didn't you? Now it won't happen because you jinxed it.

Significantly, their booth is on the Premium Row. Sony has the largest booth on the Entry Row

Should have gotten a WR camera and lens then, no need to worry about leaks.

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.

645Z was previewed at CP+ last year. The lens roadmap has also been updated at CP+ the last few years.

corner of the Premium row... Almost at the corner of the whole hall, to be more accurate. Not a very good location but somehow significant in size. Hopefully Ricoh got good stuff like the new lenses for announcement next year.

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