samfan: Oh my. It's very unfortunate but most likely they ended up in trash, since the junkie thief saw nothing but some old worthless cameras.

Not that I want to be pessimistic, but... You know.

yeah what I thought too

The sad thing is that whoever stole these probably thought "bah, old cameras, worthless" and chucked them :(

On article What we want in a macro shot – Background (69 comments in total)

Background and lighting are the tricky things that separate the A1 macro shot from the ordinary A grade shots. It is so easy to be excited by what the equipment CAN take you that you forget to make the shots beautiful as well. The last 2 tricks are particularly good - wish there were more around. Must go and look at your portfolio :). Quick question if I may, the flash reflection in the bottom frog is tiny and they vary in the others. What flash, diffuser and setting do you typically use - my hunch would be the strength is very carefully balanced to let in background colours?

JesperMP: Quotes from Ricoh statement:

"Now Ricoh aims to establish a _consumer_ business."
Does not sound good for K5 and 645D.

"Ricoh takes it as an indispensable initiative to obtain the _small_ and
_lightweight_ interchangeable lens camera technology, lens technology and sales channels held by the Pentax Imaging Systems Division [...]"
Sound as they really like the Q.

Obviously Ricoh/Pentax cannot continue to maintain so many diverse products:
645D and lenses, Kr+K5 and lenses, Q and lenses, GRX and "lenses", GRD, and consumer P&S cameras.
What will be axedl ?
Will there be a new APS-C mirror-less ?

This is misunderstood I believe. Ricoh has a large B2B business element whereas 645d, K5 is B2C.
