Rumor 1: Ricoh will announce a new micro four thirds camera with a Pentax K-mount of Micro K-mount.
Rumor 2: Ricoh is releasing something completely different in November.
Rumors are rumors, take it all with a grain of salt (remember: the Canon 1D Mark IV was rumored to be called the Mark V because of Japanese superstitions regarding the number 4).
Rumored Ricoh Micro Four Thirds Specs:
- APS-C sensor
- Similar to the Ricoh Caplio GX200
- A new, unique lens mount.
The new Ricoh is rumored to be announced mid-November and be on the streets in December. The specs, says 43rumors.com, will beat the E-P1 and GF1.
