While I truly love the concept, I do wish it was something close to this leaked promotional poster from almost six years ago...what might have been were it not for the bean counters...

This is not the leaked promotional poster of a camera terminated by the bean counters, it's a concept camera imagined by a Dutch photographer named Lieke Esveldt who has nothing to do with Ricoh.

at least the lens is still round, not oval shape.
BTW, actually oval lenses make perfect sense: the sensors are not square anyway!
Well... Technically they are...

If the execs at Ricoh/Pentax had a cheeky sense of humour (which I guess they don't) they would actually announce a real revolutionary new camera on April 1. The double bluff would be delicious.
If they'd announce a camera on April's 1st, wait for a few weeks and very slowly let the camera out , it would pump up lot of talk. Not a bad idea.

Wow! Wow!

Pentax Rumors | New Pentax ME-D photos leaked




Groundbreaking new oval e-dial!


Steve
Yawn! They could at last have done some minor photoshopping to avoid that oval wheel.

My sources tell me it stands for ME-Dope. There is a new shooting mode called Fly. Use that mode
and all your images will be Lit.
That one comes out on April 20th in the US... 4/20...
