The Sears / Ricoh Connection
3

This is gonna sound weird, but. . .  My first “serious” camera was a Sears KS-2, which I found severely intimidating at first, but I eventually learned my way around it and then learned to love it.

Fast-forward 20 years later when everyone started going digital and the DSLR craze hit, and I started shopping for one.  I vaguely remembered that my old Sears KS-2 had used lenses compatible with some other brand, but I didn't know which.  I did a little research and found out the KS-2 was actually a re-branded Ricoh XR7 that took Pentax K-mount lenses.  So, then I looked into Pentax DSLRs.

The Pentax K100D was just out and getting good reviews, so that was it!
