Seems like it'd be a better idea to sell as Pentax, and merge Ricoh models into the lineup. A lot of exposure for brands is done via compacts...

Do many purchase Pentax/Ricoh compacts? If not, it doesn't really matter. I had a film compact 9 years ago that I liked very much. The kicker was that I got it for only $96 and it also came with a pair of quality multi-coated binoculars that I still have. Sadly, it broke.
