Re: Pentax is doing well - as a Ricoh brand
In reply to audiobomber, 9 months ago

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.
