That leaves a hole. Let's hope it is plugged soon.

One month to CP+ 2018. I would think we'll get some sort of information on this from the PR folks at Ricoh's booth at that time, if not sooner.

Well, that might settle the question. Was the big show going to be a rollout of a new APS-C or a new K1 upgrade. It almost looks like both! Am I too optimistic?

Yes, the first day of March, so we've got four weeks. I'm going to guess that we won't have an official statement on this much before then, if at all.

So, the camera I have earmarked to replace my discontinued model is now discontinued! Ah well. I am hoping to get another couple of years out of mine. Hopefully by then either the K3ii will be cheap or, I may have a new object of desire! Ooerr

http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/products/index.html

link to discontinued DSLR models is at the bottom of the page

strange, it seems to be just as good as it was yesterday

and I do believe you can still buy one, NIB

so is it such a tragedy ?

This must mean a successor is imminent. If not, Ricoh have abandoned high end aps-c in favour of FF.
