So besides that an a teleconverter what else did Ricoh bring to the table? Nothing against a teleconverter but it is only an accessory and will hardly make people rush out to buy a K3.

There were big expectations, rumors from reliable sources that their long telezoom was going to be on display. Then nothing.

I was already wondering what in the world they're up to before they failed to release any exciting new lenses at CP++. Looks like they may have just decided to be content with their current APS-C lineup and leave mirrorless and full frame to the competition for the time being.

Can't help thinking that's a short-sighted strategy. The days of the APS-C DSLR are numbered. The competition is moving on to the next step *now*. The 3rd party lens manufacturers are no longer taking Pentax seriously.

Waiting the better part of a decade to follow suit would of course be the modern Pentax response to the situation.
