Hi Folks,

My trusted source told me that we could expect some announcements targeting Photokina this year. I don't want to reveal everything I know yet, but according to my information we will see two new products from Ricoh. Important thing is that none of them is a DSLR, rather a consequence of a recent Ricoh activity in some areas.

Could You guess what it is?

Upgrade from 645D to 645Z now or better wait until next 645 is out?

In my opinion 645Z is nowadays a very worthy upgrade, having in mind D version. It image quality is up to date with the newest cameras on the market, no worries if it comes to downsizing in this area, thus You receive better AF.

I wonder why we haven't seen more PLM designes apart from 55-300 PLM. Do You maybe have any information about it?

Therefore, Ricoh is limited to the picture side, when it comes to video in their products they are still somewhere near 2010.

To specify: "proper" = showing the potential of the lens ALSO in terms of OOF rendering, and the ability to maintain high sharpness on wider apertures. I hope that I explained this right.

I know the characteristics and big hopes concerning this lens. Therefore I could understand this approach in terms of 35/1.4 or wider. 50 is a standard, not really for landscapes, not really for portraits for FF. Having that in mind, thus knowing that we are dealing with fast /1.4 glass, guys from marketing department should in my opinion brief influencers (ambassadors) that they should provide couple of wide open f stop pictures for folks that are eager to buy this product for low light photography.

My point is - there is little need to market and tease fast lens giving the audience hyperfocal imaginery.

I respect Kerrick but honestly - using DFA 1.4 on f/8 and less to show the results? Give is proper samples taken on the widest opertures to show the bokeh, the resolution!

I have two K-3 and consider buying A6000 because of the very bad video in 3 series. What Ricoh should do is to upgrade the video capabilities, as fellow colleagues Pentaxians mentioned already in this topic. FHD/60p in 48 mbit/s is already enough for a good start in videography. Having sealed body and lenses is a killer deal in high capability videography. I would love to have that package in Pentax.

Therefore, by upgrading AF and video, Ricoh could turn the tide and gain market share. Marketing would just follow.

But it has the same filter size as SIgma 10-20/3.5 which is very reasonable.
