I've known and read Metal Hammer since the early 90s. So if the FF really arrives this CP+ kenspo, you rock twice
Hehe..Not long until we all know what's coming

How much do you need? Handwritten note from the president of Pentax? I and some others, that get our information directly from Pentax, have said it will come. I dont like all this negativity. Not long until everyone will get the information im sitting on. So relax! *rant*
Take it easy! I am not one of the naysayers. Ricoh has done good things with OUR Pentax so far. I have faith they will continue to do so. If we see a FF in three weeks, all the better! But I will be happy if all we get is upgraded or new lenses that clearly hint toward FF. You are not the first poster who has claimed to have inside information only to be proven wrong, and I have not heard anything from the one poster who has proven to have inside information in the past. For now I will optimistically take you at your word. Thanks for telling us what you can.

I didnt mean to be harsh I have no clue what has been said in the past etc. I only know what Pentax has told me after they signed me. They keep mme posted on coming stuff, how things are developing and they ask me for my thoughts on whats needed, missing etc. I wish i could share more in detail, but i cant. But we will all know soon enough!

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. What is it when one gets fooled five times?

Year after year there have been rumors from people who say they have connections. Time after time those have turned out to be without any truth. Year after year Pentax has told they are thinking about it, considering it and so on. During the last year, Ricoh representatives have given a FF a little more credibility, but still nothing solid. So I think it is only natural to be sceptical or cynical at this point.

But perhaps it is really happening this time. I'll personally believe it when the product is in the stores, no sooner.

No offense taken. Just keep us posted with what you can share and we will know soon enough if we can trust your information.

Actually... Pentax/Ricoh only started to tell us they are thinking/considering/working on it by the end of 2012.

So if CP+ is now in 17 days, when to expect different companies to start making official announcements? A week before?
