So what kind of announcement are we looking for?
something in person like Apple does?
something on their web-page?
a tweet?

i.e., how will we know that something has actually happened???
I dont know how they wanna do it. I guess its an official press-release through their normal channels.

You won't. Because it isn't true. In 5 hours and 7 minutes, the Ricoh Imaging website will be hacked and a seemingly official announcement will be posted there (Adam - if that's his real name - is an accomplice). But we know better than to believe it's genuine.
They will even have people pretending to see the products at CP+. Later, people pretending to buy them and posting fake pictures, supposedly made with those lenses. We know better. We can't be fooled. It's a conspiracy
For the Big Reveal Ricoh asked Jim Malcolm to rent the TV set that NASA shot the 'Moon Landings' on. </sarc>

Is anyone here on that distribution list?

Or do we all just sit around making dumb comments until someone one the distribution list gets around to saying something?

Most likely the latter of the two.

I think you should all thank ME. Why? because I just bought a new 1.4 Tele converter for $500 because I am going to Costa Rica in a few days and couldn't wait any longer for the new bodies to come out. So why should you thank me .... because the TC blew a hole in my new camera body budget big enough to keep me from getting one for several months, thereby "Guaranteeing" that the new bodies will come out in a matter of hours or maybe days. Enjoy your new cameras folks

I guess it is. Since it can be used with D FA 100mm WR

Not only do I expect it to be compatible itself, but it's quite likely that it will turn some some DA APS-C-only lenses into FF-compatible lenses. As the TC enlarges the image on the sensor, it also enlarges the image circle.

But we'll see!
