johnami: Haven't talk to anyone on the Ricoh stand about future projets?
All they can do is hum and haw about it and in different ways to different people. Then they expose lengths of tubes which are supposed to be prototypes for a possible FF body but they are looking further into future market conditions..........it's follow the yellow brick road stuff..........it might lead you to your desired wish but nobody really knows yet.....!!I can understand why certain are pulling their hair out. It's really exciting fiction......Bon assez, that means right enough. Time to look for the light. Great it's raining again. Cheese....
DPR is a rumour site? :) In the forum there is a rumour section where rumours are repeated, discussed and perhaps spread. Here we are talking about the biggest photographic show in the world. You get what you see. The Ricoh stand wasn't without interest considering it features the recently released 645DZ and the updated Q. The new KS is also interesting if not from a design point of view. But it's clean that ever lasting FF hen saga was expected to finally lay an egg in the form of a Pentaxi FF. I get the impression that there is a mass of Pentax users who really want this and are just holding on to lenses in order to finally satisfy their frustrations. It isn't really about photography, it's something else. I really don't understand why RICOH don't just come clean and say yes or no to the question..
Thank you Jeff. What's the point of talking about things which are not real..............too much fairy dust in the air.

panoviews: I would buy a Nokia with a plain Android OS and the possibility to root the device - but never with a Windows OS.
It's not what Baily says that matters, it's what people are ready to believe. If you are influenced by 'famous' people, then Nokia are happy.
solarider: It would be interesting to know what size/type is the imaging sensor, megapixels don't exactly say much.
Well the camera hasn't been tested yet, but going by the reactions of people here, good job it hasn' got the Pentax brand on it!
johnami: I don't have the the time to read everything, so please excuse me if I'm repeating something, but how does the image quality of these 'tough' photoboxes compare to your average smart phone?
Thanks guys. My question concerned normal photographic situations of course. I don't normally take my mobile swimming which is a good idea since I can't swim very well. You could compare me to a submarine, except I would probably stay under. But it is good to know that the quality of these cameras is on the whole better than smarts, considering that for a lot people their mobile is their only 'camera'...

Considering how many people read this site in continental europe, it's a pity you can't give prices in euros as well..............................Think international if you want to be international........
Just to add my most valued comments to this 'poll'which as some have said is a waste of space.The best camera of 2012 is the only one I bought in 2012, the Sony RX100!But I'm sure the other 'boxes' are also very decent machines, simply I don't have the money or time to buy and try.All I do know is that taking a picture today is about being at the right place at the right moment. Capturing the light when it is right. This can be done with any modern camera plus mobile phones.
So keep your eyes open and look for that moment no matter what your poison is..................PS 2013 should be a big year for Pentax.PPS Season greetings and atb for 2013. ;)
