Just what I predicted - Ricoh needs a new lens mount to move forward( The days of K-mount lenses are numbered. Yes, there will be an adapter to keep K-mount lenses usable but the (new) native-mount lenses will give better result.

Just what you predicted? There will be an adapter? You're talking as if this insane rumor is a proven fact...

Ricoh Imaging is committed to the K-mount (and 645D, even the Q); they said it repeatedly, and they're acting on it. And... they're moving forward:

"... we will continue to pour resources into Digital SLRs, Mirrorless cameras and Ricoh’s conventional high-end compact cameras to make this into a solid business. We are seeing an increase in share and expect healthy growth."

Everything else is FUD, made to scare people away from Pentax; same old story.
