The 50mm etc isn't much of a secret anymore..But soon they will surprise you all with something you didn't see coming..Give it a week or so
Sounds like a BIG deal. In a week or so it will still be October, this year.

Thats what i was expecting....and ive posted a few times that there MAY be a surprise.

A pure guess is 3 primes @ same time,
But four is more,open the door!
I wish for a unveil of 50, 85, 135 and 200 macro, just because, why not?

With a special glourious Golden K1 edition, because silver edition looks cheap....

And the money for those....

Dont hold yr breath on the 200mm

A 35mm is a lot more likely considering Ashai Man has indicated its being developed.

Something around 20mm is my desire.

I'm guessing a hybrid viewfinder DSLR? Maybe even a K-3 FF replacement.

A K-3 replacement wouldn't be full frame. That would be a K-1 replacement. I think it's doubtful either way.

Hope is the last thing that dies, anyway, i hope for a 85mm f1.4 or a 135mm f2 as the lens i could purchase, by the 3/4 of the next year because i will try to purchase the 24-70 starting the next year. Or swith the purchase time if specs and price allow that

Fun and games apart, we must actually not set ourselves up for disappointment - Nikon couldn't/didn't deliver the hybrid viewfinder despite much speculation - the hints seem to point to something in the MF line - possibly the uncropped sensor, but personally, I'll be happy with any significant new product - I know it will be good and it will good, and though I have no budget at the moment, I'm sufficiently invested in Pentax to want to see them showing commitment to the future and gathering favourable press - for my own selfish reasons as well as wishing Ricoh well.

News from the 645 front seem plausible.
$1500 discount on the current body, new patent for various configurations of two 645 zooms...

I think the 645 is getting a big make-over. Ricoh has done a lot to reduce the size of the APS-C & FF K-mount bodies. I think we see a new 645 body that is a significant change from the 645z. New mirror and shutter design to help with vibration and better ergonomics.

Will their patent for a hybrid OVF ever see the light of day?

Could as well be a mirrorless APSC camera built around the GR concept.

There are lots of possibilities.

New action cam?

Drone?

Compact?
