Will Pentax DSLR go Minolta's way?
Oct 1, 2011

It is apparent now the Pentax brand name stays. Thanks, Ricoh.

My first SLR is K1000 (1980) and my first DSLR is *ist DL (2006). And the way I look, my first mirrorless interchangeable could be Penax again! No, not that toy. No matter how (old) Pentax marketing dressed it up, it still belongs in the toy department.

As far as Pentax DSLR goes, I believe this is the end of it. One can just look at what happened to Minolta (DSLR). Sony gave it a hard try but finally conceded the defeat and moved on. Ricoh probably has dissected the case in every possible way and learns a great deal out of it.

So what will it be, Pentax Ricoh?
