Hi Dave,

That is compatible with what asahiman said after the "big" announcement in September turned out to be not at all what he had expected to be announced.

I mean, something has to be coming sooner or later. Ricoh shows signs of potentially understanding that getting something new out on the market before the x-mas shopping season is over may actually help their their sales, unlike Hoya who thought it a great idea to launch the k20d in January...

Most Pentax DSLRs have been announced in September.

No they spread it all over the calendar although a lot are announced in September:

K10D   -               Sep, 2006

K100D Super   -   Jun, 2007

K20D   -                Jan, 2008

Km & DA L lenses Sep, 2008 (Photokina)

K7   -                     May, 2009

Kx   -                     Sep, 2009

Kr   -                      Sep, 2010

K5   -                     Oct, 2010

K30   -                    May, 2012

K5II   -                   Sep, 2012

K50, K500   -         Jun. 2013

Looks like if we miss October then we'll be waiting until January.


I doubt another year will go by before the replacement is announced, I think there will clearly be a new camera out by the end of the year. And if you're announcing a cam by the end of the year, it's best to get it out in time for x-mas. They're not going to announce anything in December.

Ricoh rep was in the local camera store. He was excited about the new high-end aps-c camera that is going to be announced in early Oct.
