What's Next

Well CES has come and gone and now we wait for the next event. So what have we learned from CES.?

1. A new APSC Mid Range Camera is planned (Mockup and everything)
2. Two new Consumer kit lenses that look interesting and represent a positive shift on the part of Ricoh Pentax
3. The showing of the same mockups for the Fast Telezoom and the High Magnification (150-400mm) zoom however these versions have some cosmetic changes from their last showing.

So based on this, what are we to expect at CP+ in early Feburary? If we expect some progress from this past show, I would imagine that it will be incremental. Perhaps a revised version of the Mid Range mockup and some more details on features. Maybe we can expect a release date on the camera and perhaps for some of the new lenses.

If something is announced re FF I think it will follow this same incremental process and could be either vapourware via a news release re intentions, or at best a mockup of the new body.

If anything is released outright I think that it would probably be a Ricoh camera product rather than a Pentax product.

Which "two new Consumer kit lenses"?

Do you mean the black copy AND the white copy of the smc Pentax-DA L 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR RE?

Yes, you're right, there was actually just the one lens. I stand corrected

I expect more at CP+ because Japan is Pentax's main market and they play to the home market much more than anywhere else.

I would say more details on the 'CES body' and kit lens, details of the FF 70-200 and 150-450 lenses and a FF body announced with an example under glass for release later in the year.....

Some new Ricoh products I guess. MX-2 and WG-5 series.

Any FF would be a surprise for me.

I expect nothing, and therefore will not be disappointed.

I also expect nothing special and I am content. Therfor I surmise that they will indeed release something cool just to anoy me.

Seriously though. Everything we saw at CES with the actual details. They may have something like a new q lens as well.

What i expect??

- full details of the new CES body
- full details of the CES lenses (FF 70-200, FF 100 - 400, kit 18-50 )
- FF body announcement ( with body under glass ) with some details, hopefully with ALL the details ( but who knows )

That would be nice... because if is not at CP+ when will it happen? Photokina 2016 is just too far away, and CP+ looks like is the most important in Japan so..


This is how the new Nikon D7200 could come with:

QuoteQuote:
New 24MP APS-C sensor
Nikon D750 styled body with a tilting screen
Expeed 4 processor
MultiCAM 3500DX2 autofocus system
51 AF points
Built-in Wi-Fi
6fps
Buffer: 16 RAW+JPG
Video: 1080p @60 and 720p @120 (not sure about 4k)
Video aperture will be adjustable during live view
Expected announcement in the first few months of 2015


Read more on NikonRumors.com: Nikon D7200 rumored specifications | Nikon Rumors
So perhaps we can expect something "similar" for the K3.. but if is like this.. i dont see a point for developing a K3 replacement if there is so little improvement over the original K3.... is more reasonable to expect a FF body announcement than a K3 replacement with "almost" this Nikon D7200 features.
