The latest from asahi man in DPR re CP+ and the FF:



It's happening.
So it looks like it will be available April 1? Somehow that seems ominous to me.

K-1 and 70-200 are in full production run
To me, that says that K-1's are probably rolling off the assembly line somewhere in Cebu right now, being placed in Ricoh K-1 boxes, and the first batches are on their way to reviewers, testers and distribution partners (operating under NDA).

Kenspo should be getting his K-1's very soon.

Hopefully this means some more K-1 specs will also start to trickle out soon too.

Indeed. It would be very unfortunate if that's how it played out.

I think the announcement schedule is before or at Feb 25 week. Once there is an announcement, we will see the details of the camera and have time to make our choice if you really want to get it at first hand. The shipping date will be around end of March. So it will not collide with April. 1.

For 70-200, in BHPhoto
NEW ITEM - COMING SOON
Ship Time: Not available
Online Only
Expected availability: February 25 2016
Free Expedited Shipping

If the shipping date is 'around end of March' then stores will probably be advertising available April 1 - or thereabouts.

Not that I have anything against April 1, it was my dad's birthday. And the joke was on his mom, as there were twins.

Hmm. I seem to remember a previous FF/April 1st connection; here on the forum, anyway.

I'm not really sure why, but I'd find it hilarious if it was announced April 1.

I first saw that article after I joined PF (three years late) it was even funnier because there actually was a (APS-C) K-3.

Pentax had a FF plan (24Mb DSLR similar to Nikon d600 or canon 6d) around 2012. It was cancelled or changed to the current one... I guess that it might be reason why k3 is previously thought as a ff!

Laugh, if you wish - but there are 2 major problems with that so-called joke:
- people were waiting for the FF for a long time
- despite being exposed as an April 1st joke i.e. something completely made up, people are still trying to force some "validity" into it. See starjedi's post.

I guess people who were fooled by it have no choice than to think that it was a good joke

P.S. Pentax Ricoh only started to talk about their FF plans in October 2012, IIRC.
