I don't want to provoke you, but you aren't serious about the above statement - are you? Hoya decided to sell its entire camera division because of "potential" problems with one model?
If it's profitable, it's worth keeping.

Was the factory move to Vietnam under Hoya? Curious.
IMO geography is irrelevant. There is no substitute for good management, though.

Just an old troll that jumps at whatever chance to spin a simple thing as a camera failure to another one of those Pentax bashing threads and spread fear of the brand.
I could be wrong, but I'm guessing my investment in Pentax is substantially larger than yours. Regardless, I'm not just another blind no holds barred brand loyalist. I for one do not understand fanboy frame of mind. But if it makes you happy and you're okay with shoddy quality... that's up to you.

I seem to remember hearing a figure of somewhere around 6% on K-5 failures. How does this compare to comparable Nikon and Canon models?

I have read this thread through and even though it started out in good manner, it has now seemed to degenerate into a rather a " I said, You said" slanging match.

To avoid any further sinking into the mire, the thread is closed, as it appears to be serving no productive purpose.
