I just read that thread. He says it's when the embargo (non-disclosure) ends. I expect suspect Ricoh will officially announce the specs on Oct 6 with actual shipments later that month.

I suspect Ricoh's booth could look like this:

This is what you wanted for the past 10 years, right? Digital full frames.. nice, big Ricoh logo on the front too.

...what's missing, what's useless (and could have been replaced by what's missing), wrong price, wrong kit lens... there's plenty of material to be discussed.


oh yeah, the manufacturer's name on it, it's too big, the grip is too small/big/wrong shape.

Two points of analogy :

- full of frames => full of stars, like DFA* => reference to lenses to come / last years' Coldplay tube :

- in another thread, asahiman states "42 days" => reference to the quite exciting 42 Mpix new sony FF sensor

There are reasons for joice, and good times comming ahead my friends !!!

42 days"


EDIT: Zygonyx beat me to it

In another thread from a month ago, AM hints that it wont cost less than 2500 Euro, so ~$2750USD ish, which sounds about right
