Could you remind me who Kimio Tanaka is?
Japanese photographer who I think Pentax listen to about products and designs, instead of to contradictory gaijin rabble like us.

You often see his pics as test shots with new lenses or cameras - he clearly has a big influence on thecompany.

I know and I should have been more specific. I was wondering whether there is a difference between 今後の新 used in ① and 次の used in ② and whether one could implicitly mean a singularity and the other one a plurality.
I see. You could say the question about lenses is from now on and the question about the DSLR is referring to the next one. I agree that is the sense, but I just don't think it is worth overanalyzing the wording of a tweet.

reh321 - He's a professional photographer, mainly know for car photography. He's also a kind of celebrity photographer, who often appears in magazines. He's been involved with Ricoh presentations and product endorsements before.

Kimio Tanaka is the Japanese photographer who published pictures of and taken with the late Pentax-09 Telephoto Macro and who also published an in-depth review of a prototype version of the HD Pentax-D FA☆ 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW.

Is there any reason to think that question selection shows where Ricoh's thoughts are, or does it show simply where his thoughts are?

I presume these questions have been endorsed by Ricoh Imaging.

It would be good if Ricoh wants to address (2) and (3)

If Ricoh has agreed to these questions, I'm expecting more than that, although it could be more like
(2) we've been working on a followup to the K-3ii, but it won't be ready for a few months
(3) we've been studying MILC, and we don't feel it is appropriate for us right now.

It will be interesting to wait their response this time, since so far that has been the case what you wrote. Now there is MILChysteria. They are getting better, All other big brands are there. I personally hope aparatus with mirror, but...

This image is from Kimio Tanaka's Twitter. He is going to be on stage interviewing one of the Ricoh Imaging product planners, Iwasaki-san.
When is this interview scheduled for?

Will there be some way for us to learn what is said?

The KP with its flying colors. NOT!

Sorry but I really do not like idea of KP coming in various colors. I regard the KP as premium product hence it's pricing and design features is above the usual mid-rangers... but this? Maybe they should part it with the revised FA 35/2 as well to look like a funky camera set with no direction at all.

I can't wait for the interview though.

I had a laugh after clicking the cp+ link. The protruding nose of the viewfinder is kinda male show-off to mirrorless feminine look. That said, expending the choice of colors for the KP is a bit like creating more bags for laddies
