Let's be careful...

I may be wrong so don't go crazy on me but here's something I noticed...

PENTAX?K100D is a site all about the k100d, so you would assume and would also be about their cameras named after them, correct?

So we have discovered that and have been registered by PENTAX which would basically be a confirmation on the names, correct? Incorrect.

Here's what I found on a whois search of and
Registrant Search: "PENTAX" owns about 18 other domains

So I click on the 'other domains' but I have to pay to see the others that they own. So to make it easy on myself I tell myself well, I know what one of those domains is,! So I look it up and here's what I get:
Registrant Search: "PENTAX Corporation" owns about 42 other domains

Uh oh... So PENTAX registered and but then why does (a site we all know to be about the K100D from Pentax) belong to PENTAX Corporation?

As a follow up the .com domains show up as Pentax Imaging Company.

I would guess that the 100d page was created under the old Pentax corp, prior to the Hoya buy out. The newer pages are registered to Pentax Division maybe.

With the pictures I think everyone will think the K20D and K200D will be the official names now, huh?

Well, I'm still going to say it won't be

It will be strange when Pentax is going to call the new cams not K20D and K200D. Then it will be clear how Pentax call there cams. Everytime a very other name for new stuff is very unclear for consumers.
