if the rumour mill is true, there's only nine days to go. If it were true I'd think that Ricoh would maybe have started a countdown timer on their website. But they haven't so.........

At least Ricoh do say "Spring Debut" and spring doesn't begin until 21st March so.......

Just in time for The Photography Show.....

Saw on Pentax rumours on Twitter that European launch price will be 1999 Euro.
Body only.
Kit lens supposed to be a 28-105 no price details also a rebranded sigma 18-35.
Cheers,

Bruce

The rumour mill is working overtime!

Pentax already have the FA-J 18-35mm full frame lens, noy currently available but I guess the basic design is there and would just need tweaking.
Best regards, John

A Pentax Ricoh site announcement on 17/12/2015 said:

"RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. announces that the launch of the HD PENTAX-D FA★ 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW lens is changed from autumn 2015 to April, 2016."

which may be significant regarding the FF launch date.

Nothing to do with the FF frame launch. The 70-200mm should have been launched earlier, but had to be put back because they hadn't noticed a problem with the foot.

The new date might have been chosen to coincide with the FF launch.

Probably more to do with the Peruvian anchovy harvest being late last year
