I wish they would finally start maintaining the Norwegian site as well, clicking on Produkter - PENTAX Nordic takes you to a page which "highlights" the K-x and the i-10

I might be nitpicking, but... is it K-r or K-R? The website uses both names on the same page.

Other than that, it looks good.

According to the Pentax web store the K-7 is still available new. It lists it at $1,099 body only. Link is here. I had no idea the K-7 was still available anywhere but the used market.

with selfish intention, I first went into the firmware section of K-r to see whether there is some update but no unfortunately - it is only the facelift

For me, the most important thing is .....

How they say Pentax and Ricoh start a new company.

Being that Ricoh will really push the branding of Pentax.

This is very good news to me, even though it is old news !

It's just reassuring that the Pentax name will live on !

I believe it's K-r. But I'm sure they'd be willing to sell you a K-R if you really want.




I don't recall this very well, but I could've sworn that there were more FA lenses on the website before the facelift.

Does anyone know for certain whether or not any of the product lineup has changed along with the facelift?

Maybe instead of complaining about a few typos or mistakes in the new site, we should be grateful that they actually gave us a new site - the old one was appalling.

I think they did more than just layout changes on the new site. I don't know if any of the products listed have changed, but I did notice the following:

The Pentax Digital Camera Utility software updates are no longer listed under the K-7 or the K-5. The only place I've found them was on the pentax.jp site.

Site looks great! there are always negative comments for any change in the first instance - but i am sure it will soon be part of our lives. Given the fact that a site purely being maintained and managed by supporters and sponsors, the work that is going on here is laudable. Congratulations once again Adam!

Very nice, IMO. The explore link is pretty cool and pulls all of their more interesting net-based marketing bits together in one place.
