If it's really 42 mpx, it's one powerful beast. I really hope it's that great.

SNIP... - on the eve of Photo Plus ... SNIP
PhotoPlus starts Oct 21, a full 2 weeks after the rumored Oct 6 date. That might allow enough time to have an actual camera at the show I'll additionally speculate the new camera will be accompanied by a new normal zoom and new ultrawide zoom to be a complete system.

Or, maybe we'll see a 3D printed piece of plastic if production models haven't made it through the factory yet

42 is Jackie Robinson's jersey number, so that is a big plus

Does anybody actually know who asahiman is? All I have heard is that apparently all the predictions he has been making about Ricoh/Pentax the past couple of years have been very accurate, so he must have some sort of insider role. Is he a Ricoh employee?
