Good news

Thats great news.

Even as a Nikon user I want to see them do as well as possible. More competition will drive greater improvement for everyone.

With the K5 and 645D they've made a lot of people sit up and take notice. Pentax have also made a welcome return to a lot of stores in the UK that stopped stocking them for a long time, so Hoya's root and branch restructuring seems to be working out. DPReview's K5 gold award didn't do any harm either.

Seems like a long time since people were wailing about the demise of Pentax. Even Thom Hogan seems to take them a bit more seriously these days!

"Pentax accounts for 25% of Hoya's net sales."

Cheers.
