Agree. They need a large increase in marketing and advertising. I think they could generate a lot more revenue if they did something like what Canon did with the Rebel and Andre Agassi, but they may not have the funds for that. When Canon promoted the Rebel on TV, they had a large increase in sales.

Although most people who would have been in the market for cameras of that level are now using smartphones which handily outperform those Rebels. Those in the market looking for $2000 cameras exclusive of any lens will not be as numerous or as easily swayed. Ricoh buys a thirty second slot during Olympics Football/Soccer or Basketball final, there goes the advertising budget for the year, and we sold what 😕!?

I agree. The time for the cheap, low quality ILCs supported by marketing and sold in huge volumes in supermarkets has long passed.
