P.S. Soon we should also have DPR's interview...

There will be very little posting about this interview, first, because nothing of substance or significance was said (it was mostly Theta), and second, Pentax is already  heading to oblivion, and diminished interest and activity on the forum is reflecting this. Ricoh execs clearly are in  self sufficient mode, don't care about the market realities and competition,  and unlike Theta and GR, Pentax is to them just one fairly expensive  and luxurius hobby. As long as they don't lose interest in this hobby, Pentax is still not completely doomed, there will be a miniscule market presence, and you could still buy some new products, whenever they eventually depart the great Ricoh secrecy cloak and become available.
