Hi,

Well, it's this second half of this year and next year that will tell us where Pentax is going,freed from the last of the Hoya developements. I know speaking to my Pentax friend things have got to seriously buck up, the worlds financial problems have not helped either.  Pentax really need to sell in large quantities, their best seller was the KX, since that model their cameras have improved enormously,but sold less well. My guess is they need another entry model that will appeal to the masses, a lot of women bought the KX as well as beginners and students.

In short they need a mass seller!

Dave's clichés

I think you're spot on.

Of course, they should not neglect the higher end - either K-mount or 645D. I expect them to expand their product range in both directions.
