Is the image/rendering of the camera cut off at the bottom?
Hearphone plug protuberance is missing!

Well, whatever it is, bad marketing put to the side, it'll be a beast. I have been holding off for years now on switching to Nikon, so for me, it'll be the best gone damn camera on the market and I don't doubt it. Let's only hope the AF system has been nailed though. Something Pentax hasn't had much luck with in the digital world so far

They're using a lightning connector compatible with the iPhone 7

They probably mean the entire camera with format. Like it is a tv-show or something...

One thing to note is that where the English version uses the word "launch", the Japanese version uses the word "発売" (hatsubai), which means "on sale". That sounds more confident to me.
Indeed. This is the only valuable piece of news from this update.

While not news, the text is deliberate in referencing Pentax's history and hinting this new camera will continue the tradition of innovation. The name Pentax is used twenty times in the short text. Ricoh's homage to and reliance on Pentax brand values seems significantly stronger than when the K-3 was released.

My best guess is the new full frame is 36 megapixel with sensor shift as seen in the K-3ii.

This is photoshop. If this is Fa31mm then thè camera is significant smaller then K-5. The lens looks like Fa31mm but can't be because of the size. The bottom of the camera looks shopped off, it's not high enough.

Mehhhhh Combining that with all the text failure.......are we sure that Ricoh owns this page?

you came out of hibernation in the wrong season, go back to bed. We will call you in spring.
That date is already known for some time and you already complained about is some time ago.

It could have been for the announcement, not necessarily the actual launch. Now it's clear and unequivocal.
