I said October since that would make sense for the big Christmas and Black Friday shopping season.

Announce, release, ship, available in stores (Japan) and worldwide might all be different dates spanning months.

Any date except the 1st of April, or should it be announced exactly on the 1st of April?

How many announcements does one camera need? You could say that it was announced in February, this year, but that would be far too obvious. It's getting like the announcement chain that precedes government works: first you announce the intention, then the feasibility study, then the plan, then the budget funding, then the confirmation of the plan, then the start date etc etc…

Why isn't the weather forecast for Hades included in the poll?

I just hope that I live long enough to see/touch/use the mystical fabled Pentax full frame before I die.

Has there ever been proof that RICOH are actually serious? (I don't call a plastic 3D print, proof of anything serious)

It does not matter if Ricoh release it or not, we've been waiting and talking about a Pentax full frame for years, as if making a 24x36mm DSLR is a transcendental revolutionary technology nor it provide an exceptional jump in image quality like 645z MF does. So, even if Ricoh never release anything, there are still the options of keeping the excellent K-3 or K-3II , or ultimately getting a second hand 645D or 645z.

Instead of a poll we should take bets. Winner gets a prize.

Pentax full frame and the "Canada Dry" effect: a lot of pressure built up in the can, and then psssshhhit; only selling a few cameras.
