BestBuy? They need more than that...

It's an uphill battle but Pentax can be successful if they stick to their strengths (dSLRs) and achieve much higher visibility of their products. One simple step, getting their cameras in Best Buy (USA), would make a huge difference.

BestBuy is already selling Pentax products:

I doubt that one simple step in a highly competitive market can win the "uphill battle". Even if such a step does exists, it will be matched by multiple steps from competitors not willing to lose their market share to Pentax.
