Who said? Ricoh Imaging: "The D FA* 50 1.4 will be released during the fiscal year 2017."

Ya but Ricoh is also a figment of Ron's imagination, at least according to this line of thought.

I'm sure Ken is bound by a pretty tight non-disclosure agreement; we are very fortunate to receive his input at all.

Making him uncomfortable to participate here helps nobody.

Ya, it helps those who want to build themselves up by throwing out wild speculation. The fewer people who actually know something around, the more nonsense they can spin. The number of times we see people spout nonsense as if it were fact is truly disturbing.

It's the posturing and backbiting of little kids on the play ground. Accept as far as I can tell, these are grown men. It's pathetic.

And when you're caught, don't try and spin some more nonsense, that doesn't help. People will think you're even more of a loser than they did with the first indescretion.

I agree, it's sad.

Canon's old exec Chuck Westfall had a no-discussion policy about future products or timelines philosophy.

But, whole websites have sprung up out of rumour mills.

Maybe you should be a little more up-front in your approach?

Got a question for Kenspo, PM him.If he wants to answer he will. Want to decide what is in who's imagination? We have a pretty good idea who it is that is living in their imaginations here. We don't need help deciding.

...I could disturb Kenspo , with a PM.However, that may disturb him from his work....With a direct forum comment, he has the right to remain silent...

And I know if he answered either way, he wouldn't divulge anything that he cant.

Getting close to 5months of the Prime,Kenspo your times ticking away!
Are they delaying announcements in order to try to up-stage Nikon who are about to celebrate their centenary?

Its not like they gave me a certain date. And I didn't say more then 2017 either. The 50 should be close anyway. Haven't spoke so much with Ricoh last month due to holidays etc + me travel around Europe working. And yes, they keep and eye on me..And they see me as a loose cannon

Nikons announcement(whatever it is,FF ML?) is in a matter of days.....I don't think RI will announce anything until a month ending with BER.

Nikon has so many things rumored for announcements, d820, d760 and the new mirrorless system they are building. I wonder what will be announced first)
