I do not know if it was a Hoya thing but the severing of the development cord with Samsung was a good thing. Suddenly the DSLR's could AF fast and accurately in low light, JPEG's were not soft and everything just worked better.

It could have been a good thing..but it was never really exploited.

Samsung just bashed out a few clones and did nothing else. They could have made some different K mount bodies and gave users a choice

I can't blame Samsung for the jpegs either that came from Pentax at the time

Now Samsung are having almost no impact in the market with their NX series
