It's the same approach they took with the new FF lenses - as first seen, they were quite plain, but they did get people talking, so I guess Ricoh got what they wanted!

Do any of the new cameras say Ricoh anywhere? Sounds like our complaints about the name on the K-3 were heard

As for the block of plastic that is the FF unveil... I'm willing to bet there are some working units being shown in hotel rooms under NDA away from the show floor.

I haven`t seen any Ricoh logo on cameras this time... anyway Ricoh is doing a great job , really, so no claim about that for me, they deserve "thanks" for their work

There's no reason to believe even the "block of plastic" isn't itself a working prototype. Industry has been using 3-d printing for decades to produce housings for prototype units before committing the money to tooling a factory floor to produce large numbers of units. It only makes sense, considering the design might to be finalized yet.

Before 3-d printing, you saw stuff like this.

So nobody has checked to see if the K-S2 can take the AA battery adapter?

Hands on previews are saying it does not take AA, the slot is only large enough for the Li109.

Some image I shot today at CP+ event in Yokohama.
The FF was just a plastic prototype, no new details about it... all was focused over the new K-S2, a nice camera in my opinion
Thanks for the photos!

A full frame with flip-out screen just like Nikon D750 ! Awesome.

The button layout is almost the same as K-3 except the red LV/REC is gone for good.
Interesting, I had not noticed that before.

Where exactly do you see a flip-out screen ?
Certain angles show it better. Look from the rear left shoulder and you can see that the corner of the screen isn't really flush with the rest of the body.

From interviews they have said the FF will not have a pop-up flash. The shape of the pentaprism also suggest the same (if there was a flash it would be flat on top). Does anyone know if the new DA 18-50mm built is with hard plastic of metal or both?
Everything I've seen says/suggests/looks like mostly plastic.

Geez, there is no glass in the viewfinder and the rear LCD doesn't have an actual hinge. This thing really is a fake plastic mock-up, could have been printed on a 3D printer. The only thing this proves is that Ricoh is willing to advertise that they are working on a FF. We can't really interpret any of the implementation or features based on this.
I'm quite sure it was. But imagine if they had released D FA lenses, and were still mum regarding an upcoming FF body? Or had said "FF is coming" but with no mock-up? I think the block-o-plastic approach is fine, all things considered.

Nice flip-out screen on the FF, also, doesn't seem to have onboard flash.
Or is it ?

Normally flip out screens are counter sunk ala ks2 what if it's touch screen and removable for wireless remote use ?

Knowing the focal length you took your first shot with, I put a 50mm on my K-S1 and took a shot of my K-3 with the FA31 mounted. I tried to replicate the angle and framing as closely as I could hand held late in the evening after a few glasses of wine

Anyone who can be bothered should be able to put to bed any further debate about how the dimensions of this camera stack up against the K-3. My rough calculations suggest the distance between the two lugs for mounting the shoulder strap, and the height from the base to the top LCD are almost identical. I think the perceived size of the FF mock-up is due to the more vertical sides of the top of the mirror box and the size of the pentaprism.

I just hope it's more Df than D800 in terms of size and weight!

Compare camera dimensions side by side

If my arithmetic is correct it is considerably smaller than the Df.
