Mirrorlessrumors.com says there's something coming...

This was recently published on Reddit, hope it's already in here (I haven't found it, but, you know, newbie here :-)

Don't worry Pentaxians: Ricoh/Pentax is also going to announce "something" - mirrorlessrumors

A new "Q" is exceedingly unlikely - at the last CP+, when asked about MILC the Pentax representative said they'd be focusing on K-mount in the immediate future.

Here we go again. People torturing themselves with unrealistic expectations. Mirrorlessrumors is merely repeating something they read at PF here. Good chance we'll see a GRiii; virtually no chance we'll see a K-01ii or new Q stuff. Ricoh/Pentax already has their hands full just trying to fill out the FF lens line-up. Why would they be chasing after markets that are already stuffed to the gills with new players?

Didn't they also say the Q wasn't dead?

Yes, the APS-C flagship with the 50 MP sensor, 8.3 fps, and the $7,500 price point. Can't wait for that to come out!

Carl Garrard and Rush2112, the OP of the thread below, are the same person and the rumour's substance, or lack thereof, is also the same:

GRIII with WR and various features could be really attractive camera.

The $ 7,500 pricepoint was not linket to a APS-C.

Typical rumors snowball effect. He's probably believing that his snowball will bring a real product ...

Do you say that because Ricoh sent you a copy of the new camera model for a blind test in your blind and on a Kayak?
