RonHendriks: One thing is for sure. The total sales of images for this Olympics will be a lot less then for the 2012 London Olympics. Less magazines and news papers have survived over the past 4 years.

Internet is nice, but you can't pay a flight ticket from those expected sales.

It is great. As an idea and as intentionally. I do however see issues with actually running the business. I don't think this would find finance on Dragon's Den.

Looks like a great cool camera to me. Then I don't think enough people will buy it unless it will be cheap.

RonHendriks: However not telated in any way to this review. Ricoh doesn't use Pentax camera's for their own work. At the Ricoh Open, grass tennistournament for ATP and WTA, they hired a photographer working with Nikon D4s this year. Why spend money on someone working with Pentax when you don't believe in your own product. A story that is going on for years.

This is a photographer hired by the organisation to deliver images for the event. They have images on the website and social media and make a Daily news paper that is printed by Ricoh. So this is seperate from the sportsphotographers shooting for a newsagency.

pseudobreccia: I've always been a big Pentax fan and supporter...but these sample images are horrible! What the heck is Pentax thinking? I tend to believe that the camera will be really good...but this is no way to market a product and advance the bottom line! A 90-yr old grandma taking a photo for the first time with an iPhone could produce better images than the ones on display!

Making some image just at a better level ksn't a Secret known to just a few people, there are maybe a million peoplek who could do a better job. You have to want to!

Are you Pentax Police? The images are a way of presenting the Pentax FF camera to the world. No matter how you spinn this, these images are never doing a Job the way they should have. Ricoh is cheaping out on these images........Well then you get a burn on the but for doing so.

aftab: I wonder how many units they will have sell to make this camera profitable.

I do wonder if three years down the road things are different.

I think Hasselblad is loosing.

The Pentax 645Z with it's low price should make some sales. So maybe growing to 10.000 units is possible.

Where is that 50K number coming from? I don't think it is that many. My guess is maybe half of that sold.

RonHendriks: Hasselblad is the next to be absorbed.

A company like Hasselblad is like a vineyard. You are proud to own it, but the money bleeding will end that joy sooner or later.

Yes I know, but maybe some people bought a Samsung yesterday not knowing and not being told by the salesmen in the shop!

technotic: The bigger story here is is this the beginning of the implosion of the photography industry in general? Samsung are a highly profitable company from what I know and could easily sustain some losses in the camera division if they saw a future in this business. Is this sign of things to come?

In the short run already some camera system have to disapear. We have so many new mounts the last years that they can't all survive.
