Careful

Sounds like it is open warfare, with Pentax die-hards coming to its defence.

Sure Pentax used to be an optics company and can make good lenses. I am not sure however how much of the original Pentax is left now, when spit out by Hoya. and sold only for $125 million to Ricoh. Patents got sold or transferred to others, staff slashed, experts/know-how and valuables stripped by Hoya, etc. And with another crazy price hike for its lenses, when they are already so high for a brand struggling to attract much needed new buyers, looks like suicide to me.
