Looking forward to Ned Bunnell's comments

In his blog last Friday, Ned Bunnell, president of Pentax Ricoh (USA) wrote:
Equally important are the relationships we have with our users.

With this in mind, I've read many of your concerns about the recent launch of a unilateral pricing policy in the U.S. and its impact on our lens prices. I'm going to spend some time over this holiday weekend to develop a list of the top conerns you've voiced and then will share my comments with you here - hopefully early next week.
It will be interesting to hear what he has to say.

I'm sure it will be limited to discussion on current gear prices only - he wouldn't mention what these price increases mean regarding upcoming Pentax products.... not yet at least.

There has been a long thread running since Friday discussing and ranting about this.

I wouldn't hold my breath. The big boys in Japan make the decisions and whether Ned knows something or not, he most likely can't tell you really anything that wasn't announced by the mothership. So it'll be round words saying nothing. "High expectations", "great effort", "making the brand stronger and more visible", "new products coming in the future"... You get the point.

I guess (without good evidence to justify it) that I am an optimist.

"Early NEXT week ..."

Bonjour,

It's come and gone ... that is "early THIS week" ...

Today's Thursday and obviously tomorrow's Friday ... the clock is still ticking, if case anyone hasn't noticed ...

Not to be (too) mean, but don't write it if it's not going to happen ... enough said. A+, J

Edit - Oops ... missed that all important word ... "hopefully"

Have you remarried also?

I forget whether it was Mark Twain or Ambrose Bierce who defined re-marriage as the victory of optimism over experience.

I looked it up. It was Samuel Johnson.

My wife and I were married in 1974. She puts up with me. Could I ask for more than that?
