Why be all high stung about a name... clearly you wouldn't mind owning a Fuji or Sony so why not a Ricoh badged Pentax... sound pretty silly if you ask me!

That's a good point. I have to say that I have an affinity for Pentax as I've loved the brand for a long time. Sony would be a leap for me (never has any Sony cam or wanted to) but I've been shooting with a Fuji X100 for two years now, so I have a little brand loyalty there as well.

I know it's just a name, but it does mean something to many folks. Realistically, if Ricoh was to rebadge EVERYTHING effectively killing the word Pentax, but kept similar features (WR etc) and the K mount I'd probably stick around but primarily because I don't want to switch systems completely and render all of my k mount lenses useless.

Hopefully this rebadging business is P&S under Ricoh, DSLR/Mirrorless under Pentax.
