In the English Alphabet, the letter J is halfway between C and P. What we are going learn about is a joint collaboration between Canon and Pentax. What else could it be? Other than that and my mirrorless comment earlier I got nothing.

They’d be more interested in an “H” event.

The event is now announced for November 7. There is one session in the morning and another in the evening, hence "Morning & Night". It's via Zoom.

J Limited Online Event | RICOH IMAGING

This is a computer translation of the introduction part of that page. It seems that it is not a product launch, but showing ideas that were going to be exhibited at CP+ before it was cancelled. Remember that the KP-J was only released after it had been shown a few times and they had got some customer feedback.

If you want to join, you have to register in advance, but it will be completely in Japanese. Judging by the GR Zoom event I attended, it would be pretty much impossible to follow without a good grasp of Japanese. Also the only J-Limited product so far was only released in Japan, so this might only of academic interest to most PF members.

---------------

Hello, this is TKO.
It has been a while since I last saw you.
Due to the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19)
How are you doing in the midst of the world's major changes?
I would like to ask those in the medical profession and those engaged in countermeasures
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Let's work together to get through this situation.
Now, I'm looking forward to seeing you all at CP+, which was scheduled for March this year.
I've been looking forward to the opportunity to explain our new idea to you.
Unfortunately, the event was cancelled and the event could not be realized.
This was an unavoidable decision under the circumstances at the time.
After that, we didn't have a chance to present our idea to you.
This year's "J limited online event 2020 "Morning & Night" and
I hope you all will see it with a title that is more exaggerated than necessary.
We are pleased to announce the following.
We will be holding two sessions, one on Saturday morning and one in the afternoon.
Please feel free to join us.
We hope you will enjoy this event, even though your time is limited.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this event.
Come on, 1%er, Go for it!

I have a Kushitani perforated leather motorcycle jacket that looks a little like the leather in that photo. Perforated leather was a thing in motorcycling around 15-20 years ago. Not as much now.

Humorously, when I saw the link to your post, it displayed as "There's going to be a J limited..."

Of course, my mind jumped immediately to the FA-J lenses, and I was really confused...

A plastic-mount, low-cost, zoom Limited?
Haha me too

What does 1%er mean? Pentaxian population in the photo universe?

Is Pentax embracing being limited?

What's with the letter "J"? Japan?

I hope we can hear good news from them aside from birthday greetings.

Remember that the Pentax brand had a 0.85% share in the DSLR market in 2019.
