Ricoh will allegedly introduce a new Pentax-branded camera in the near future. The first Pentax K-S1 photos have appeared on the web. They are detailing an ultra-compact DSLR camera with an interesting design. The shooter has some green LEDs embedded in the grip, whose purpose remains unknown for the time being.
Ricoh has officially revealed the Pentax HD DA 28-45mm f/4.5 ED AW SR lens, wide-angle zoom optic aimed at Pentax 645-series medium format cameras. The new lens features a constant maximum aperture throughout the zoom range and offers a very high image quality. It will be released this August with a hefty price tag.
After several leaks during the past few days, the Pentax Q-S1 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is finally official. Ricoh has introduced this new Q-mount shooter with a 12.4-megapixel 1/1.7-inch-type image sensor and built-in sensor-shift Shake Reduction technology.

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.
