Actually, I believe it's completely authentic.
Now excuse me; I just missed the Easter Bunny earlier this year, so I have to get back to my pumpkin patch. I'm not taking any chances on missing The Great Pumpkin

Looks pretty fake to me but I like that 645 lens idea. I hope somehow that has a glimmer of truth to it.

Looks fake. Extremely amateurish, and by that I mean "the work of amateurs", not "the work of unskilled professionals"; a poorly thought out wishlist made into a slide.
Poor execution. Even a cvasi-incompetent, time and money wasting professional would build better skills at making slides (and I'd say Ricoh Imaging people are of higher quality - Mistral75 gave a good example, the teaser which is quite well made). Even the colors are poorly chosen, I bet parts would be unreadable on a projector. I can do it better, in Paint.
Foveon image stolen from Sigma. Yep, another very strong clue; Ricoh Imaging has images showcasing their own Pixel Shift on their website. They would rather copy&paste those.
Images reused everywhere. Why? Because the amateur making this up doesn't have any original images.
Mentioning the 645 adapter; wasted space as this is an accessory of no particular importance (and old news, very old news).
"5 axis", using other brand's marketing designation.
Last but not least, the title.

It's screaming in our face: fake.

When you see him, could you let him know I still haven't received the title for the Brooklyn Bridge, even though I sent payment to that bank in Nigeria like he asked me to?

Some pretty poor form here for such a usually friendly and respectful international forum.

My guess is also fake since the PRIME M and PRIME M2 are 12-bit and that it was a hardware thing that a different cpu was for 14-bit.

Well, it is too nice. But I like 36 MP sensor idea.

Other than that. I must say that graphics for one who has done this with his/her Amiga 500 has not lost their touch.
