How about Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company.... "Have you seen the new PRIC...K-mount camera? It really symbolizes the PRIC style of photography."

Pentaxians + Riconians = Penreions

Well it won't be long now! I'm hoping for the K-3 or at least a nice lens or two.. DA 135mm Ltd f1.8 or DA* 100-400mm f2-4 or something like that

Statements like these seem to bode well for Pentax:

"We, PENTAX RICOH IMAGING will further strive to promote the digital camera business under the long thriving brand of PENTAX, and establish it to be a leading company in its unique path to be able to rank with other competitive top tier brands."

So we're all PRIC'ers now? 'K...

Guess I'll have to mod my sig.

I wonder how the crew at the Denver office are taking this. Will their structure be the Big PRIC Bldg? Will they distribute stickers-buttons-etc saying I [heart] PRIC! ??? Can we milk this for any more inappropriate humour? Feeble minds want to know.

Seriously, folks. Are you expecting something big from (working) day one? Why not let those Ricoh execs to move to their new offices and drink their coffee, before start taking such important decisions?
The buyout itself and the mess that follows will keep them busy enough, for a while.

I expect only a general announcement; Ricoh has bought Pentax, Pentax will concentrate on the IL camera market, Ricoh will take over point & shoots. If they were to announce an imminent new body on Oct 1, then it won't appear to be a Ricoh/Pentax product, but a Hoya/Pentax product.
I don't understand this brand strategy. People that own P&S's move up to ILC's and typically when they upgrade part of their P&S experience influences their next purchase. Why maintain two separate brand names?

Well, Ricoh doesnt make the regular me too P&S camera, they will probably continue their niche. Pentax will probably make a few more P&S's, but the market is heading in a different way now. Mobile phones will take over the P&S segment. And mirrorless will be the new "my first real camera". hmm or maybe the second camera after the mobile phone........

It's too artifical segmentation: there's nothing the DSLRs are any better than mirrorless cameras.
I'm sure DSLR will disappear (or will take their niche, like rangefinders).
