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.

These interviews are just PR advertisements.  And, if you approach them in this manner, it is easy to understand why they say what they say.

They want everyone to believe the brand is well to protect the brand.

On the other hand, the other players could simply be doing the same PR stunt in reverse.

In the end, just buy and use the camera and system that has the parts at the moment that "you" feel is optimal for "you" and don't try to argue "your" reasoning to those that disagree.  It only matters to you, the individual.
