Re: Pentax is doing well - as a Ricoh brand
In reply to audiobomber, Oct 18, 2013

It is much more interesting for me to read the minutes before the acquisition of Pentax. Ricoh was searching in vane for a company to buy. It had lost it's footing in the market. Pentax was an acquisition of desperation in a way. However it did fit there business plan. It was the only thing that made me keep my Pentax lenses. Hoping the new K-3 is a huge success? Really liking the direction now.

Of course the Pentax fan boys will spout hogwash and pretty much ruin the K-3 probably. Pentax fan boys have dealt Pentax an almost fatal blow IMO. Most serious photographers have left after being duped into a Pentax fanfare of nonsense.

IMO, if the do not make a go of it. Ricoh will be pretty much history.
