I guess it's really coming so it's no longer suitable as April fool's.

I already received my LX-d pre-order, delivered today, April 1.

However, I also just got my taxes back from the CPA and I can't afford to keep it - I'll sell to the first one who PM's, at 10% discount - $2,689. Only 267 clicks, PP, USPS Insured Delivery ConUS included.

I'll take it, but only if it's "minty".

It's the special 'Doubleminty Edition'. So it's two, two, two 'Mintys' in one.

Will that be OK?

not as far fetched as we think maybe

Hey, that could conceivably happen! If Ricoh maybe wants to go whole-hog in imaging, and wants Nikon's stepper patents, etc... Nikon's not a giant like Canon or Sony, Ricoh is about twice as big.

Apparently the same no-FF-induced troubles go on at Olympus. That mockup does look really cool though!

Where is the annual Pentax FF April fool joke/ picture / rumor ?

I am waiting for it!!!

come on!
Cumon Richo - An avid Penax user for 30 years starting with a K1000 and more recently K-10 and K-7, I have given up waiting for full frame Pentax and have moved to a Canon 6D and traded up all my prised Pentax mount glass. Loved the brand but it has been let down by prior owners. I am glad that you are picking up and bringing out new kit - just a bit late for me. Over and out. JJ

Nothing new.

But slightly surprised by lack of such joke this year.
