Ok, so Ned = Skipper, John = Gilligan, the Howells are played by Ricoh, hopefully the Professor is the rehired engineers, but who are Maryann and Ginger?
I'll play The Professor since he was an inspiration when I was a toddler.


The serious question is who is going to play that occasional character named "Wrongway Feldman" that flew the biplane that could never figure out which direction to fly.

I wouldn't slam them too hard. The last time Pentax released a dSLR it made the cover (K-5 - Feb 2011) and had a subtitle of:
"This rugged new DSLR is tough—and tough to beat"

Not a K-5, but rather a K-7, with a non WR lens, too

Look very, very closely .... J

True, still this thread is about Ned which means Pentax USA , which means USA and not worldwide. In the USA B&H and Adorama are two of the largest dealers. Amazon just might be larger and it does look to be lowering prices some. So for B&H and Adorama to compete TN the USA market they will be forced to lower prices. Those two retailers have just got back from an extended vacation so the market forces will start to loer prices in the USA. Ned or someone in Pentax USA has to talk with their major retailers to let them know what is going on and what the future holds for them. Now it would be nice for Ned to let us customers know a little, especially since he claim he will in his blog.
Even in America...., Two of the largest retailers , but not the largest retailers . but waht is there to know? Prices have increased. they aren't goign to drop them again anytime soon. what's 'Ned' going to say that makes any difference. it'll just be vacuous corporate speak.

Actually they are, look at amazon.

Sounds like the retailers are the ones causing this...

Not necessarily. There are those that think the U.S.A. should pull out of the U.N.

:bigthumbsup: I was wondering if anyone would catch that and was aware of the real person that character was based on. That character was on Gilligan 3 or 4 times.
