New information about new flagship's selling date

Yep.
Here's a shot i took of it.
Lightning conditions were awfull ; but here are a few observations :

- no prominence whatsoever of the rear screen (again, check on KP...)
- no more "specific shooting mode" selection wheel : replaced by the "S.Fn" button, that will allow a probably modifiable sequence of functions to adjust "blindly" but with most of the infos in the viewfinder (my deduction)
- enlarged viewfinder's eyecup (about 3-5mm wider than the K-3/II one) : it could be correlated with some enlarged prism magnification ; and/or with larger hybrid oled electronic internal screen (?)

Think so yes.
And the screen surface and lack of reinforcements prove it is fixed.
Check on KP...

Fore sure, the screen will remain fixed.
There is no room for anything else.

If that ever happenned, that's [very] old history.
I can confirm that for the last 10 years where i attended, people were paid in cash for material presentations in the Ricoh booth during the Salon de la Photo.

As far as costs are concerned, a Sony rep.told me recently they represented around 1000€/m2 in this year Paris Salon de la Photo edition.....
And this is only external expenditures.

Hi Karen,
Photons to Photos use DxO mark sensor data, therefore it is raw files comparison :)

France's Sigma's head of sales told me yesterday than "nobody can better speak of Pentax than Pentax people."
Full stop.

Thank You Mistral :)


Here are the goodies - some left today for those who didn't collect already - take your PENTAX Gear !

Basically, there is a stronger "omerta" as for anything else when talking about future Pentax medium format products.

I tried with 3 of my best in-house contacts, and they actually don't have any clue of what is happening with this product-line.

IMHO, Ricoh are still struggling to decide what they should do - or even stop that format.

There are some probably substancial "cons" to continue :

1- Pentax has been passed away by Fuji and Hassy and their compact yet affordable GFX & X1D line
2- The MF market is now "crowded" with only a few hundreds of annual sales
2- High definition 100 Mpix sensors could be a real problem considering the "old conception" of most of the 645 lenses. Actually they have only issued 3 modern lenses in 8 years since the 645D launch.
4- Considering the limited R&D funds and the priority given to FF product-line, they cannot afford to develop a new MF mirrorless mount
5- My conclusion : there is more than 80% probability that Ricoh Imaging are just selling 645 inventories, and will end-up leaving the MF boat
