I find it kind of suspicious that Kenspo would have especially made a dpreview account to drop this bomb and say noting about it over here. I smell a rat. Maybe this is a fake Kenspo.
However, he did say that here

"Q; Do you know any lens mount détails?
It's a new, electronic mount. I don't know more." Maybe just mockups at Photokina - Re: Pentax is back.: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

To add what kenspo0 wrote in the Ricoh forum, because some people may go off on a tangent:
"Thinking about it, they didn't tell me they would show new models ready for launch at Photokina. It could be prototypes or even mockups like the K-1 last year." Re: Ricoh (possibly) entering the mirrorless market by 2018: Ricoh Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

"Q about flange distance? Re: Ricoh (possibly) entering the mirrorless market by 2018: Ricoh Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
It's a new, electronic mount. I wasn't told more. I presume it has a shorter flange distance."

I'm guessing mockups, not completed bodies and lenses to show - If they decide to go through and announce it at all. Don't forget, Pentax takes it's time with things!

Imagine, two new mirrorless lines, apsc and ff and lenses for the two new additional formats, what an undertaking... has Ricoh hired a complete mirrorless unit, or are they divvying things up?
Wow, Pentax is really going places :0)

Since PF tends to go on forever with the longest threads - near impossible to keep up with for the nuggets if you only pop in once in a while (moi), try not to go too bat stupid crazy with this ;0P

Matter of fact, if there were some way to make those nuggets to stick out to catch up easily on the super long threads, wouldn't that be special?
Totally fake info.

Fake account. Dont belive anything: Ricoh Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

Look at the username-it is a zero not a letter.

Don't know anything about that roumor.
I made a few jokes here and there on this forum but in this comment I wasn't joking at all: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/16-pentax-news-rumors/286207-cp-countdown...ml#post3134345
I don't have any newer info, could be that old mirroless project in new reincarnation or could be some canikon or sony fanboy screwing with Kenspo and the rest of us.

Whenever Samsung finally reveals the fate of its NX system then perhaps we'll know how well developed a R.Pentax mirrorless system might be. I'd sure love to see another agreement that transfers some tech between the two. The Samsung silence is really weird in the age of knowing everything They did just update some firmware, but no new products and they've abandoned many parts of the world.

Isn't M42 flange distance the same as K-mount flange distance?
What I was getting at, in a light-hearted way, is having an adapter long enough and with enough internal room to fit a stop-down flapper plate and an aperture reader. A pipedream, I know.

That would be fun if, in the end, there were mirrorless cameras, or mock-ups thereof, shown by Ricoh Imaging at Photokina .

P.S. : kensp0 = kenspo-olso

Could it be...

Sounds like grounds to report this user to dpreview and get the account banned. Obviously they are attempting to damage you. I do not think you should let that go without reporting it.
