I agree with the points you make.  I spent 30 years with ILFORD so I understand what working for a smaller more flexible manufacturer is up against when competing with "giants."

ILFORD did it by picking and choosing where they would compete. They are still in business in what was a very declining market.  So  Pentax can do it too with well thought out strategies that are implemented well.  But....

...they must be well thought out strategies that are implemented well,  because truth is 3% market share is a problem.  I think staying with DSLR is a good decision.  But I also think it's critical that they grow that market share up a bit.
