Thom expects a new Pentax camera

Thom Hogan has mentioned Pentax in the run up to CP+.

"I expect a camera announcement from Ricoh/Pentax, and it should be a surprise."

Thom usually avoids rumors, and says nothing about things he doesn't have reliable word about. He also rarely mentions Pentax as it doesn't seem to interest him (he's a Nikon guy.)

So this offhanded comment carries some weight with me. Perhaps there really is something more than the KP coming shortly.

Mirrorless medium format? Mirrorless fullframe? Return of the Q?

Any of these might qualify as a surprise. To be honest, a K3-III would not qualify (yawn.)

Wouldn't hold my breath... as others have said it could very well be the KP announcement haha.

And, if it isn't, then we'll get an actual surprise indeed.

Maybe he is so clueless about Pentax that Hogan is just surprised that Pentax is still in business, the clue being the KP announcement.

Nobody feeling miserable to be part of a thing where "The blogger Joe Plumber farted and now is sure the next winter will be very cold" makes it into a thread title?

Must be really the low end of "speculation".

Desperate times call for desperate measures?
