Thinking back a couple of years the new Ricoh is a sensation, five years it's Science Fiction. Now easy to think, it's ok, but should have been EVF, 2.5 or 2.0, and so on. If the rumours are true it will be a very good camera, good enough for most people here. But lets hope for 2.5 - will be noticed compared to 2.8, better in low light than the A (which is not bad), and NO LENS CAP. Build quality will be excellent, but most people will not notice? If the price is $200 lower than Nikon, that will matter a lot. If it's good enough it will sell, but not as much as RX100. But hopefully so much that there will be more Ricoh cameras. Not very often, but of high quality. - Maybe a 50mm? Or larger with EVF? Full frame - when it's possible to do it the right way. If the money is made in other divisions of Ricoh and from Pentax cameras, Ricoh can take the time needed to make special cameras that also will sell a lot.
