Yes, these sessions obviously repeat themselves. And they could be about existing products... I don't think that's the case, still, it's not impossible.

新製品. They are about new products. At least, products that have been launched since CP+ 2016 (hence my remark on DA 55-300 PLM RE).

I will doubt until they actually exhibit new lenses, not even mock-ups....
This headline could simply consist in some customer lens survey restitution...
Btw, the choice not to promote anymore K-1 in the booth's top adverts is weird enough.

Is that as in "No K-3 upgrade for you! Come back one year!"

My guess is the GR III will have a 24mp sensor and maybe the noise processing capability from the K-70 and KP. No WR and and no SR as that would call for a new body design.

What would be really cool though if they manage to put an EVF in it. Put a a partly translucent oled display on the back behind which is a EVF in one of the corners, which can be used switching the camera to evf mode, but is invisible in displaymode. Has somebody patented this idea already?

Sounds interesting, I may not understand properly, but canīt Ricoh do it with a new firmware?
But for me with my GRII a external EVF with a firmware update sounds great and a bag for it on the camera strap.
Yes 24Mp are likely in a GRIII and good for cropping, and 2 extra batteries included in a pocket friendly case.

No the resolution of a part of the screen isn't high enough and there needs to be a lens to focus the EVF bit for the eye. So a physical EVF behind the back screen. OLED because that can be made translucent and very thin.

Compact cameras are disappearing fast, replaced by smartphones, and Q, sensor wise, was nothing more than a compact camera.

As it was in the 80s, SLR went down drastically after compact cameras came ( that was a new thing) they sold well. Many buy what is new and marketed well, but those who are enthusiasts continue to buy SLR/DSLR/MILC.

Q are a MILC. the screen was "bad" in sunlight, the cameras was slow and some of the lenses was "Toys". So some ( or all) reviews turned thumbs down and readers saw the red flag.
Same with K01, the first APS Milc for Pentax. Not so great screen, some mistakes and a thick camera , reviews sad no because they expected a short camera, a better screen and perhaps more. They did not realize that a thicker camera and shorter lenses are easier to use.

Q can be great if there would be an enthusiast camera too, 3? fast lenses and a autofocus adapter for K lenses.
Q lens 01 = 8,5/1,9 ( Equivalent 40mm) and 37gr, a 9mm f1 may be able to land on 100gr or a little more, and that is OK to handle.
Remember, the sweet spot for Q7 are around f2,8 (5,6 for APS and 8 for FF)
A 4mmf1,2 (Equv.~20mm) can be a 250gr lens?
A FA50/1,4 are eqv. 280mm. Imagine an autofocus 50/1,4 eqvivalent to 280mm. ...
Pentax are alone with Q. and can do allot with it. ...
Pentax donīt have to do the same cameras and lenses as other brands do.

You visibly didn't try Q-7 nor Q-S1, those last iterations where anything but slow....
