Ricoh
Jul 3, 2011

Haven't been on this site in a while so just read the news about the Ricoh buyout. I'm feeling a little queasy about the future of Pentax at the moment. Is the three year warranty on a K7 which I bought last October meaningful anymore? Back in January I sent my K7 in for repair which ended up taking 10 full weeks! So what will the future be for parts and such of models that have been discontinued? Pentax is a fine DSLR and I love my K7 but what if a year from now it can no longer be repaired. Should I sell it now? More than that though is the Pentax name heading for the history bin ala Minolta? These are just my immediate random thoughts on the Ricoh news. Any speculation on these issues.
