You were likely chatting with a bot.
OK just for fun I did this:

Thank you for contacting Ricoh Technical Support Chat. How may I help you?

Are you, Thomas C., a bot?
Thomas C.
Not to my knowledge.

Do you know what a bot is?
Thomas C.
I guess a robot?
Me
An automated reply in a chat.
Thomas C.
NO

Are these replys automated?

Am I talking to a real person or an automation?

Here is my question:

You should get your stuff together on your US website. This lens here: PENTAX DA 35mm f/2.4 AL | Ricoh Imaging has the name of the DA 35mm/2.4, photo of the DA Ltd 35mm/2.8 Macro and specs of the DA 16-85/3.5-5.6. Whoever designed this website was terrible, even I could have done a better job!
Thomas C.
I am sorry you are having problems with the site. I can forward this complaint to corperate office.
Me
Thank you.
If it is a bot it is quite convincing, especially since it made spelling errors.

Did anyone notice that the listing for the 35mm f2.4 showing the 35mm f2.8 macro has the following typo:
"The perfect lens choice for Digiral SLR beginners"

I wonder if a new "digiral" lens would improve either my photography or my engrish

Digiral cameras make all photos go viral.

To me everybody can make errors and mess-up but I would expect that when they modify their website it is first qualified and checked before going live. It is really embarassing to see this kind of thing surfacing. Not professionnal at all and taking risk to loose some clients.
