I think congratulations - and maybe celebrations, are in order. There seems to be not even a whisper of Ricoh anywhere on the K-3II.

Unless it's etched onto the focusing screen.

At risk of turning this back into a photography related thread, it's prudent to point out that the reasons I won't buy a K-3 may not extend to the K-3II! And, will the FF camera have the same features as the K-3II? Very interesting.

I won't buy the K-3II because the camera leans to the deep darkness of the hociR...no flash...

Sorry, can't buy it if there's no mark of the hociR.

I've been branded

Totally unrelated, of course, but I wonder if the coming PFFT will have an on-board flash...

No matter, I still won't buy one unless it carries The Mark

To keep you happy, it will watermark all RAW files; you can choose between the words 'hociR' and 'Ricoh'. So safe for you to buy one

What if there will be a flash... Hidden behind the Ricoh on the front of the prism. It will bink every shutter release and it will be used to trigger off camera flashes

I've just been told that there will be a secret flash and it will be located inside the viewfinder.

It intends to fire at full power (towards the photographer's retina) for the Hocir non-believer, and 1/2 power for those who have doubts.

You've been warned.
