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.

I cry because people take offense waaaay too easily when their product of choice is being (slightly) made fun of. It makes me sad that their happiness is tied to inanimate objects

But in that case, there was no product - so what was made fun of? Perhaps... the people waiting for the FF?
The fake announcement was made to be as realistic as possible (except that obviously there was no FF planned at that time), and used people's desire for such a camera against them. IMHO the joke element was missing.
If there was something completely unrealistic yet well disguised... if only...

Anyway, that's my opinion and you don't have to agree with it. And I don't have to discuss it further

A new action camera will come soon too. Couldn't understand if they ment a new one or a big upgrade on the WG-M1 (most likely big upgrade).. But think it will come here (would surprise me if not).

Dont know so much details yet. But understood that it will have stabilisation amongst the new features.

Sorry for not being more specific. But when someone with bad english tell another with bad english, that tells me..you get the picture..haha

I need to learn japanese.

Thanks for sharing this information. Can you ask whether there will have a new DFA 200 macro?

I will not be surprised for 50 1.2 and 85 1.4 with SDM/DC :-)

Reminds me of the time I was an extra in an opera. The music director was Hungarian. The stage director was Italian. The set designer was German. Every so often a problem would occur and the three of them would stand in the middle of the stage and yell at each other in a language that was said to be English (but none of us American students could follow the argument).

Sorry but I have to say - "why am I not surprised"!!! , just reminds me of Cable TV shows originating out of US with Subtitles of English Speaking Actors that I could clearly understand.
