NDAs always elapse on the very day of an announcement ("embargoed until...").
True. But I was trying to understand why 18/2 has come up for discussion. Implies an announcement well ahead of CP+.

Why not? Ricoh Imaging use to make their announcements a bit ahead of big events. Being an outsider, they would take the chance of being unnoticed if they did otherwise. Sometimes they even split their announcements in two parts:

2012 (CP+ started on February 9th)

- February 2nd: K-01 and a GXR lensor
- February 7th: Optio WG-2 and WG-2 GPS

2014 (CP+ started on February 13th)

- February 5th: HD DA AF 1,4x AW (converter), WG-20 and WG-4 / WG-4 GPS

2015 (CP+ started on February 12th)

- February 4th: HD D FA★ 70-200mm f/2.8 ED DC AW and HD D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 ED DC AW
- February 9th: K-S2, HD DA 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR RE, smc DA L 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR RE, AF 201 FG and WG-5 GPS.

Reasonable again. So the possible announcement date really spans 2/18 - 2/22 :-)

*ahem*

So I was just in a private room and saw that the official date Ricoh talks is February 25th. YOU HEARD IT HERE FOLKS.
































Actually, I am in my living room and I saw the CP+ front page says it starts on the 25th.

Your analysis is right on. It will be before CP+.

On the other site it has been indicated by two posters (and "confirmed" by asahi man) the following:

-Improved 36MP sensor from D810 (better DR)
-Possible new feature to improve and expand edges of some slightly less than FF APS-C lenses
-Price: 1999-2300 Euro
Better high ISO and better DR performance possibly in the same class as 645Z
Better focusing system - best Pentax ever
The SR selection on the dial on the right side - take note
Price looks good

So what to expect this year?
  • K-1 full frame
  • HD 70-200mm/f2.8. (again, but this time functional)
  • HD DA 15-30mm (Tamron rebadge)
  • anything else?

Pentax should make sure that the world pays attention... we can expect a lot more announcements form others at CP+ and yes these announcement will affect Pentax and the future of FF. Canon should present a camea in the same price bracket as the K1 plus some follow up of the current 5D. Add a couple IS lenses or VR from Nikon and the Pentax combo is losing a lot of its advantages - no wonder after all the delays.
After the Pentax announcement we need to digest features, wait for serious people report on the features and camera and lenses to its pears. So before summer, we will have no clue, but excitement will only start after we get to know the bare sepcs.

A certain cat picture flashed through my mind...
zapp, I'll know quite a lot about the K-1 well before summer, and there's nothing you can do to prevent that.

Each and every new high-end Pentax DSLR comes with an improved focusing system, making it the "best Pentax ever"...

And a 24x36 kit zoom (a.k.a. D FA Standard zoom), like a 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6.

And perhaps the successor to K-3 II (sort of an 'APS-C K-1') and possibly the 12-28ish DA Wide zoom. Definitely not at CP+ for those two and may be not this year for the latter.

I take it nobody is expecting anything re. new Q camera and lenses.
