Your remarks are welcome !

Ricoh / Pentax should create a new camera, but this time with a good viewfinder ...

I'm not sure of all the lessons that can be drawn!

Sigma had a novel type of sensor, which hasn't really taken off.
But they have joined the L-Mount (mirror-less) consortium, giving them partners which provide them with a larger and more credible marketplace.
And they are developing lenses for an even wider marketplace than that.

Pentax has gone in pretty-well the opposite direction.
No partners.
No developments (such as lenses) that they sell into a large marketplace.
