Re: Disregard Asahiman?!

Hi,

Asahi man did tip a high end APSC DSLR early this year  It wasn't announced in April for reasons he didn't know or couldn't say.  He later informed us about the Sept 5 Ricoh conference, but didn't say it was to announce a DSLR or any other specific products.   He's also told us that the teleconverter was in production, and some of us probably added that to the Sept 5th list.   We've assumed that the conference was the one to announce these things.  The post in which Asahi Man informed us that the conference would deal only with the Theta 360 sounds as if this was genuinely counter to his expectations.

The notion of FF appearing at the Sept 5th conference never came from Asahi Man.  He's said perfectly clearly that there would be no FF in 2013.  This was wishful thinking - I don't think anyone who's been seriously watching Pentax statements about their evolving consideration of FF would have expected a product this year.

I suspect that Asahi Man had reasonable tips about the products, but that the Sept 5th conference was the wrong timing for their release.  I'm betting that they will emerge closer to whatever Photokina is called these days.   Let's give him a break......  October?

Cheers, Rod
