Ricoh Womens British Open (golf)

I noticed this on my screen as next weekend's big golf event. It will be interesting to see if Ricoh says anything about their Pentax division during the telecast - in a way it's last-minute, but then again they probably knew a few months back if negotiations were going well. We shall see!

Because Ricoh and Pentax are public company , information is confidential before the sales is annonce to the public. 99.99 % of the employees of the 2 companies are not aware about the potential transaction. Also Ricoh still do not own Pentax and they cannot talk about it or advertise for them
This is standard for any transaction in any compagnies

Ricoh is very active in different sports events. They are sponsor for WTA tennis in Rosmalen. I see them on some beachvolleybaltournaments. So they do have a big budget for promotions.

Maybe this will mean a new batch of FA* 250-600/5.6 or FA* 600/4 lenses for them to film these events with on their newly acquired Pentax by Ricoh K-5 cameras.

FA* 250-600 would be sexy
