Could be legit. After all, it was posted to the Ricoh UK official FB page.

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

Yes. And the oval dial actually controls the aspect ratio of the sensor Squeeze the oval horizontally into a circle, and you get a 1:1 ratio. Mash it vertically into a skinnier oval, and it does 16:9.

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 being April 1, I thought it OK to fudge a little on the origin of the poster. Click through to Flickr for the credit. Note the Canon hot shoe.

Oval makes a lot less sense when you try to rotate it.

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.

That would require that they have a Pentax camera close to done.

You rotate your camera with your lens, right?
In fact, the baffle on the rear end of some lenses are rectangle.

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.
