This is getting awfully tired.  Rumors from China now get us all excited.  As a small company I thought Pentax had the potential to be nimble and quick.  It now seems they are at best at being slow and obtuse. A sad day.


I'm curious, how do you define "nimble and quick" vs "slow and obtuse"? You're giving such verdicts based on what?


Hi Alex

A reasonable question.  The company seems to recognize that they have to produce a product that will be seen as unique.  That is a good thing.  They also may recognize the importance of the K-mount tradition and that may put some limit on their next steps -- one can only hope.  That being said, one wonders how they see the world.  The slight glances "under the tent" offer little information.  While others roll out "new" product they seem to be taking a more measures response route.  They have good product in the various K-5s, they have a loyal if smallish base of committed users, and most importantly one assumes their debt levels are quite manageable.  In this world I would have expected a more aggressive, definitive statement about the future.  "Hod on we are coming."
