The larger question, Pentax aside, is whether there is any significant future market for cameras other than those in cell phones. Who will buy them once the 60+ age group passes on?

Yes, there is a huge market for system cameras. You can start thinking sports, wildlife and camera interested amateurs. The latter are not only 60+.

It is compact cameras that have problems with phones. Why buy a cheap compact camera when you already have a camera in your phone.

Note though that the camera phones we are interested in are the ones with three or four camera modules for super wide, tele and zoom stuff. Very expensive phones. Most people just get a cheaper phone with a simple camera. And that simple camera is just wide angle. Not all that useful sometimes.
