You are right. Thom just topped it all and made a "name-title-thread". I want that. Who doesn't.

Start mine with "Ron thinks Ricoh is stepping out of the camera business next fiscal year!"

It's not even half the fun if you don't get money per click on your fantasy-blog.

The mechanics are just the same as with any tabloid. "Aunt Lizzy witnessed the Loch Ness monster" sells the paper and makes money for the producers even if they don't believe the crap for a second themselves.

Hopefully a true APS-C flagship.
I'll second that hope!

A new GR (which is expected this year, anyway) would be a Ricoh camera, not a Pentax camera.

Thom doesn't make a difference between Pentax and Ricoh. It's all the same.

I used to shoot Nikon, so I have read Thom for years. My observation is he is an astute observer of the camera companies and trends, and clearly has deep contacts with Nikon.

He has no time at all for Pentax, but I would suggest he does know about the KP - it was a bit hard to miss on the likes of DP Review.

That was a joke and shouldn't be taken seriously.

Maybe it's a 720 degree Theta.
If they added the K-1's pixel shift super resolution feature, you'd might define it as a 720 degree photo. ;-)

Looking forward to people getting angry at Ricoh because they didn't deliver on this promise.

I don't find evidence on his website that he has credible insight into Ricoh/Pentax, the Pentax brand, or Ricoh's plans.

LOL yep it's true. You know it's desperate when the OP agrees with you



And no I'm not Thom.

I also think he missed the KP memo. Isn't it rather time for some new glass to leak? ;-)
