Hmmmmm, between Ricoh & Pentax Skunk Works
In reply to anthony mazzeri, Apr 25, 2013

Perhaps we are looking at something modular, from the Ricoh side, body tech from the Pentax side as well as glass formulas.  Add to that running Android/Linux making it a true platform based device that would maybe be a "Hyper-DSLR"???

Something akin to a MF digital-back but with even more modularity .  To me this is extreme but it leverages the interesting things Ricoh has been quietly working on as well as what we have to assume Pentax has somewhere in their engineering morgues along with the idea of a true computing platform device that might even include some sort of embedded image processing on par with LR/Capture One?
