Just about what I expected.

In that case we will definitely get a new camera in the 11 days left of summer, and 10 days of winter, in 2019

I was looking at film cameras in the database, and saw phrases like “in production for 15 years”. I think we are just returning to normal.

Good thing I'm not really in the mood to buy anything.
We're talking about a Ricoh WG-60 for our next camera.
Plus, my K-1, DA*200 and my old DA 55-300 need to be sent in for repairs. I'm probably going to spend $500 without buying a new camera. Stuff wears out and needs service.

And just why do you suppose someone who answers twitter questions is in the decision loop as to when new cameras will be announced and why would anyone tell outside official channels when a camera has not been officially announced? This comes from Pentax Rumors so I guess the "rumor" is factual.

Yay! I am so glad for not having the temptation! In other words...Steve has no intention of buying a new camera in 2019.

Of course! They regularly quote this "News and Rumors" forum, right?

I actually like that Ricoh doesn't release a new camera that makes my K1 look like an under-dog. As long as there is not new model, my bank account is preserved , which is a good thing.

BTW...who is Jen Carrigan and why are her musings important? FWIW, the last blog post on her site was made October 2018 and was on the same topic.
In February 2018, she panned the K-1ii; obviously a fan.

Ask about lenses not cameras. Lenses were promised, are needed, ...

Nothing has ever been promised.

Given that the big boys are releasing new models in the shadow of declining sales, Ricoh Imaging might have the smartest strategy when all is said and done. At least until the sales market finds it's level.
