D FA* 70-200 removed from website???

I can't seem to find the D FA* 70-200 on Ricoh's website. Ideas as to what is going on there? Are they still hoping to launch in Spring? D FA | Ricoh Imaging

Here it is:

You didn't say which Ricoh website
Afaik Ricoh Imaging Japan should give us more information by the end of the year.

I've had dealings with them twice. Both times a fiasco. No more for me.

Yup I believe it's still slated for a spring release, probably February.

The Japanese consider late February to be spring, because that is when the cherry blossoms begin in Okinawa.

Japanese families with daughters set up platforms with china dolls on them in February and put them away on March 3rd on the day of the Dolls festival.

At least that is what the Web tells me...
