Seems legit.
I can imagine all these timetables living in a spreadsheet or a Powerpoint somewhere in Ricoh HQ.

Plastic lump -> teaser -> Countdown 1 -> Countdown 2 -> Countdown 3 -> etc, with numerous branches.

Japanese we're never influenced by the Romans, and they don't pay a whole lot of attention to things Roman, ( unlike ourselves who basically are a modern extension of the Roman empire, we just moved the Capital to Washington instead of Rome). Someone posted that Japanese spring starts Feb.2
True, western Spring is based on equinox on 20/21March, thanks to Wikipedia I am able to provide the information that Japanese Spring is from 5th of February to 6th of May. But indeed CP+ seems to be a good guess for the presentation...

Since CP+ 2015 was when they revealed the first FF mockup, CP+ 2016 would certainly be a good place to reveal (at a minimum) the progress they have made.

Indeed, anyway a presentation in Spring seems wiser than in Japanese and Western winter, I expect test pictures of blooming cherry trees with 42 Mpix pixelshifted...hehe

I am pretty convinced that the FF will be announced officially softly and by feb 2016 for the CP 2016 show it'll be shown off there and pretty much ready for sales at the same time

Warning: tongue-in-cheek (and a spice of sarcasm) follows...

Since the imagination has been unleashed with abandon after the advent of the Ricoh/Pentax 'teaser,' what do folks foresee for Ricoh's CP+ booth?

- Floor area twice the size of their last display?
- A floor show of Ricoh gals and guys juggling with whisky bottles, DA 560's and the new 70-200?
- A magic show where first you see the new FF, then you don't?
- Wall of colour made up of Qs, K-Ss, and FFs?
- Articial waterfall cascading onto a hundred FF cameras each sporting the new 25-72mm WR lens?
- Announcement of a new global network of Pentax service centers?
- Lots of real FFs for visitors to handle and try? Or lots of 3D FF print-outs for visitors to look at?
- ??

mrs. monochrome accidentally pitched a box containing all my camera battery chargers and spare batteries. Monday B&H delivers a new K-3 / K-01 charger.
This is why we all need Large oak cabinets with glass fronts for our gear - storing in a box just isn't safe around TWDGI (those who don't get it). And yes they must be Large, so we all recognize the need to buy more stuff!

mrs. monochrome just brought me a special Hitchcock chest of drawers from an estate auction in which to house my hobby items. My lenses are in one drawer, camera bodies and accessories in another. mrs. monochrome also looked the other direction while I PM'ed for a new BC-90 charger and D-LI90 battery that comes with a complete K-01 / DA40XS kit as a bonus item.

All is good in the monochrome world.

This is like a bad constipation that is relieved few pellets at a time while on-goingly eating lots of bad food. I wish we can just have a terrific butt blast once for all, just to get it done with.
