Hopefully a better translation... forgive me if some business terms are not exactly "English", I kept it somewhat literal.

"With the merger of Pentax into Hoya group, which will be effective from the 12th of March, new roads will open in the photography market for the glorious Japanese maker. What appears to be sure is that Hoya, which is mainly interested in the medical segment of Pentax, has all intentions of improving the photo/imaging one as well. This is confirmed by the fact that, for the first time in the company's history, Pentax will hold an international press conference on the 10th of January in Dubai. In all likelyhood, on this occasion it will be possible to confirm the rumours about two new reflex cameras (evolutions of the excellent K10D and K100D with 14MP and 10MP CMOS sensors), and evaluate in which ways the "new" Pentax company intends to move in a market still dominated by Canon and Nikon. Further considerations will shed light on whether the 645D project will ever be restored, how much time it'll take to integrate and renovate the lens system/offering and, if, as it looks like, the collaboration with Samsung for reflex cameras will go on."
