Cypress and CMOSIS sensors, why not?

Canon, Sony, Fill Factory (sensor business sold to Cypress), and CMOSIS can do it affordably. I think Sony is the only one in that list who'd deal with Pentax.

Cypress and CMOSIS are, according to their own site, hold by investment groups.

Why would they deal with Ricoh/Pentax?

Ricoh is one of the largest copiers manufacturer and they are partially owned by Hitachi (a company that makes Canon look like a small business :-D)

And what about Samsung? Are the ties totally broken?

From a company's point of view, it is not always the best idea to rely on one supplier only for a critical part of the product.

Have fun,
