At Photokina 2014, Ricoh said that it was planning to release a Pentax-branded full frame camera sometime in 2015. Although the company’s CES 2015 event has been focused on APS-C products, it appears that the HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/2.8 lens will be announced soon for DSLRs with full frame image sensors.
After previewing this product at the Photokina 2014 event, Ricoh has finally announced it. The Pentax 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 weathersealed lens will be released for K-mount DSLR cameras by the end of November 2014. The optic will provide high image quality, which will be appreciated by landscape as well as portrait photographers.
Ricoh is expected to officially introduce the HD Pentax DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR lens on October 30. The company previewed the product at the Photokina 2014 event and the rumor mill is claiming that the K-mount lens is bound to become official soon. The claims are backed-up by a specs list and a press photo of the lens.
The prayers of a multitude of Pentax fans will be answered in 2015. Ricoh has confirmed that the company is currently working on a Pentax full frame DSLR. Furthermore, it appears that the camera will be released sometime in 2015. On the other hand, three new K-mount optics were on-display at Photokina 2014.
With Photokina 2014 being just a few weeks away, official announcements have started to pour it. After Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus, it is Ricoh’s turn to introduce a new product. The Pentax K-S1 DSLR camera is official and it is packing an LED illumination system that will indicate the device’s state among other details.
Ricoh has allegedly scheduled the Pentax K-S1 announcement date for August 28. The new K-mount DSLR camera has had more of its specs leaked on the web ahead of this date. An interesting information consists of the purpose of the LEDs built into the grip, which are said to display the state of the K-S1.
After having some of its photos leaked, an insider has leaked the Pentax K-S1 specs list. Additionally, two more photos of the upcoming DSLR have been revealed, confirming that the camera will be released in multiple color choices. The K-S1 is expected to be announced by Ricoh sometime prior to the start of the Photokina 2014 event.
Ricoh will allegedly introduce a new Pentax-branded camera in the near future. The first Pentax K-S1 photos have appeared on the web.

After several leaks during the past few days, the Pentax Q-S1 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is finally official.

New Pentax Q-S1 photos have appeared on the web. The mirrorless interchangeable lens camera has been leaked recently, with the rumor mill undecided on its name: Q2 or Q-S1. It seems like the latter is the right one, as it can be seen in the new set of leaked images. The Pentax Q-S1 camera will be announced sometime in the near future.
Sources familiar with the matter are claiming that Ricoh is preparing to launch the Pentax Q2 mirrorless camera and 28-45mm f/4.5 lens for medium format cameras. In order to prove it, the sources have also leaked some photos of these two products. Ricoh is expected to officially announce these products ahead of the Photokina 2014.
