At this point I see it as highly doubtful that Ricoh will be able/willing to start a whole new mount and lens lineup from scratch, at least on their own. They're barely sustaining the K-mount as it is. IMO Ricoh's best chance at capturing some of the mirrorless market would be to join up with another manufacturer. They've shown willingless to work with other manufacturers on lenses at least like Tamron and Tokina.

Of course Panasonic has a long history of working with Olympus and Leica. If Olympus also joins up, a three company cooperative would greatly speed up lens rollout considering at least Panasonic and Oly would be starting a FF mirrorless lens lineup from scratch, while Canon and Nikon have a huge lineup of FF SLR mount lenses to fall back on. A relatively open, joint mirrorless endeavor like that has the best chance of competing with Canikon and Sony, and attracting third party lens support.
