Your second half of 2012 Ricoh prediction
Jul 28, 2012

If you look at DPR's Ricoh product page

http://www.dpreview.com/products/Ricoh/cameras

halfway through 2012 already and it's still looking very sparse indeed with only last year's delayed GXR A16 Zoom module being the singular release from Ricoh so far, which also completed the existing GXR roadmap. Along with last year's release of the GRD IV so the next GRD V not due until next year, and the upheavel of the Pentax merger it's all a total unknown now. They're certainly due the usual CX7 soon, or will it be an Optio..? Ricoh themselves have mentioned things like a GRD zoom or even a 'gap filler', but nothing of the sort has appeared yet... other rumours say there may not even be any new Ricoh cameras to predict..

So what's your prediction for the most likely product we're going to see first from Ricoh in the rest of this year? I think two predictions each - a serious one as well as a wildcard one - see whose and which turns out to be the most on the mark.

Serious prediction - A GRD monochrome.

Left field prediction - a P10 update which will actually be a Q mount module = the GXR PQ. I think this is actually probably far more likely than a K mount module or even a slightly revised P12.
