Pentaxians like to mix old and new tech, to do their own tweaks: Ricoh's next full frame will be delivered into pieces, a IKEA style full frame camera that you'll have to assemble yourself, tune the AF as you wish etc.. Due to the cost of assembly saved, the camera will be cheaper.

A lot people are wondering what is the product and why a professional photographer to make an annoucement. A lot of people talk about Pentax's lack of marketing but here we are all gabbing about what their little event will be announcing.

To me, the announcement is not just about whatever product is coming up, but the fact that Pentax under Ricoh is now actually being marketed... I was recalling how the Pentax rep spoke about doing teasers for the full frame in the Imaging Resource interview with Pentas at CP+ 2015:

KS: ...yeah, release the lenses. So our marketing/communication team had the idea: Why not start a teaser?

CP+ 2015 Interview: Ricoh’s investment in Pentax, full-frame strategy, lens plans and more

There won't be a new body, that's for sure. Kenspo has basically said the only new body left to release this year is the full frame camera and that isn't coming till late fall (probably).

I certainly am not holding my breath over this announcement. It just doesn't strike me that Ricoh has anything in their bag to announce, unless they are going to share some new lens/len tech they are working on, but even that doesn't sound like something that will change the way photographers work...

I wonder if the thread tags give us a clue...

"announcement, pentax brand, pentax news, pentax rumors, photographers, resolution, ricoh, seats, sensor, sigma, technology"
A Pentax 645 with a Foveon sensor OR pixel shift as a mean to emulate the Sigma technology?

I was just on Australian Pentax FB and they had a link for Pentax Fans now not working I might add. They had a special for 10 people and it was a screen monitor colour correction for $99 am I a bit behind or have they always had these. I know of other brands but not this one so did we just get a peek at the something new?

Perhaps because nothing is going on? Because it's about "getting access" to a technology which was already announced?

But people will surely be disappointed when their dream camera won't be announced tomorrow

Speculation

I'm pretttty sure it will be a giveaway from Pentax of a free 645z to every forum member whose first name begins with a "T" . A bit arbitrary, I know, but I didn't organize this promotion...

Hmmm.

So it sounds like whatever is announced on Monday will probably be a surprise to Ricoh too.

I think its pretty obvious Ricoh will be announcing the new Q. Same internals as the Q-S1, slightly different styling, and finally a 920k LCD.
