Summer of 2016. They have to correct the DFA 70-200. Announce and release a DFA 24-70 2.8 and 24-105ish kit lens.

They seem to be working on an arbitrary schedule that makes no sense.
Think positive. It means absolutely anything is possible, including pleasant surprises.

Since there are no 'shops' that carry any Pentax gear around here... I'd say never. Only Target / Frys carry the Ricoh WG. Samy's doesn't really carry anything (can't even get a 18-135mm WR from them).

Typically, news starts to break around the first week of September and 'leaks' start in mid to late August.

Not long to wait, then.

Well, actually. they did. They said late 2015. And that goal has been stated repeatedly. There is no guarantee they will be able to meet that date but it is just silly to post without at least some idea of what the discussion has been. Go back and read the announcement thread.

History is a pretty good indicator.

Yes. That is why Monochromes schedule seems most likely. But the purpose of my last post was just too correct an inaccurate characterization of what Pentax has said.

I am hoping for a pleasant surprise as I am the odd man out with a Pentax outfit when I get together with my pro photographer friends (almost all of them Canonikons). My K3s have made me money so I have no complaints or remorse switching from Canon. I just hope Pentax delivers a knock out punch and gives me some bragging rights as the 645z did and is still doing in the MF world.

I have heard it would be there at the "Salon de la photo" in Paris. Yet I mistakenly voted for Nov 2016 instead of Nov 2015.

I'm thinking in December (of 2015). IIRC the original digital K's were always in December here. I always thought it was a little silly to have it so close to Christmas, instead of November.

The Sony A7RII is landing in Australia on the wrong side of $4,000...... so I'm concerned it's all becoming a bit much.

Ditto. The unstable exchange rate situation at the moment makes me particularly anxious about what the price of the FF may be towards the end of the year.
