I really hope it isn't being exaggerated- it takes a lot for something to be groundbreaking
Well, again, when has Ricoh every announced a new product via a 30 minute webcast, 'hidden' on the web with a commercial photographer with a 50 person limit?

It is likely not even Pentax specific... I'm guessing this is software related..

Speed booster made by Sigma to use with Pentax MF lenses on the new FF body with pixel shift / doubling new Pentax processing.
They had to limit the amount of participants because there will be a giveaway , everyone will receive preproduction FF body with Sigma booster + one MF lens of your choice,

We might all be on the wrong track. Maybe it's a breakthrough to bring APS-C quality to small 1:1.7 sensors, ushering in a Golden Age for whatever point 'n shooters are still out there. Or is it 1.1:7? One or the other is massively incorrect, forgive me.

More seriously, picking up on Monochrome's suggestion from several pages ago... would love to see Ricoh spending a lot of money fast to offer working professionals the same support -- and rental gear when needed -- that they get from Nikon and Canon. Starting now, so that next year, at the Olympics, there will be a Pentax tent filled with 645Zs and long lenses for the sports pros to use...

There's a "gap" between the 360 and 540 flashes.

So I'm predicting the AF450 FGZ II flash. :-)

An APS-C mobile device?

A sub $2000 MF camera for the masses "enabling photographers everywhere to do amazing things."?

A dedicated cinecam with global shutter and MF sensor?

I agree with Adam. They are making a huge, huge claim. If they don't deliver something extremely interesting, it will be like the boy who cried wolf.

A high resolution Theta with good video would be great. But it won't live up to the "changing everything" hype.

How about modular lenses?
