K-01 Party at Paris Fashion Week

I saw this posted on the Pentax Facebook page. Didn't see it shared here yet. I thought this was a great move by Pentax. Good to see Ricoh elevating the brand! Thoughts?

At first I thought Karl Lagerfeld was Mark Newson, which kind of fit my mental image of him, though would have been more like a Mark Oldson. Turns out Mark Newson is a Neck-beard whose idea of getting dressed up is wearing an untucked button up shirt. My kind of guy.

"The new Pentax K-01 now features, mini Viewfinder emulation on back LCD screen! We just minimize the LCD display to a local spot at the top middle of the LCD screen! Give others the impression that it has a viewfinder! Make it really awkward for your nose! Save power!"

Either that, or he's just messing around =p

He's either really obviously revealing his ignorance or giving a truly sublime pimp to Mark Newson.

Where's Ricoh?

I think that the graphics are pretty interesting given that they don't refer to Ricoh at all. Ricoh seems to be holding the line about honoring the Pentax brand.

I want to see banners at the Ricoh GXR parties coming up. I hope they all say Pentax

Max Vadukul is a photographer, so maybe he was giving a subtle hint there
