Think of poor Pentax. First bought up by Hoya, stripped of its medical instrument business and then sold to Ricoh, who have kept the Ricoh name for the P&S lines.

Pentax is doing very well indeed under Ricoh. When Hoya bought Pentax they made no pretense at all about the camera division. They wanted the medical instruments division and nothing else. I suspect that at this juncture, Pentax has more R&D resources than they have ever had in the entire history of the brand.
