Full Frame not to market before april 1 !

So I'm reading the financial report from Ricoh. That is published today. Not very easy to read.

There is no mention of Pentax in the report. For the camera section only GRII, WG-40 and Theta are mentioned.



The report is to find here https://www.ricoh.com/IR/


So the camera business figures are not easy to read and find, since there are other businesses in this categorie. These are probably only or mainly for the Japanese market. Of them the lease business is the one making the most or only profit as mentioned in one of the report.

"Other Sales
in the Other segment decreased by 9.3% as compared to the previous corresponding period, to 81.1 billion due to sale of San-ai apparel business and so on. As a result of increase in profit of leasing business and so on, operating profit in the Other segment increased significantly as compared to the previous corresponding period, to 2.0 billion."


In the financial report the sales to Europe are down by 34,6 %. This is a major decrease and probably this is only camera.

The forecasts for the running quarter ending march 31th 2016 is that the overseas sales in the Other section (so this is maybe only camera) will be 12,5 % lower then for the quarter just ended december 31th.

To this my conclusion is that the sales for the upcoming Full Frame won't start before april 1th, wich is the new fiscal year in Japan! This is still in line with a Spring Debut, so no worries.

Hard to know what this means. Funny that your analysis comes at the same time that Pentax Forums runs a story that "Full Frame is Coming Soon." At the same time, an announcement before CP+ would likely mean a camera release at the end of March to beginning of April.

Ron Hendricks is saying Nikon is going belly up within two years?

You explicitly say you have absolutely no substantiation for anything you claim but that is the reason why you claim something?

So basically Ron Hendricks is saying Nikon is going belly up within two years, based on the fact that we read nothing in your post that Nikon might survive it's current substantial customer exitus?

What does FUD mean?

I'm sorry, but I was writing about the Financial report of Ricoh and the camera business that Pentax is part of. I don't recall saying anything about Nikon.

You should look into a forum that is following Nikon if that is your hobby.
I think you missed his point. He was drawing conclusions based on the absence of information much like he said you were doing.

This has nothing to do with the thread title, nor is it Pentax news or rumor.
