French Pentax web site

A week ago or so there was some discussion about the new European Pentax web site. This is what I'm receiving and it looks good compared to other Pentax sites.
Just for your information...
page du Pentax Q7 - PENTAX RICOH IMAGING FRANCE

The official Pentax websites in Belgium and the Netherlands are still not updated with Q7 and K-50/500, one week after their introduction. Their latest news is from May 2012. They should be punished.

I think the problem is that in BE and NL Pentax is represented by the importer, De Beuckelaar, and that will change at the end of June. I assume they will launch a new site at the end of this month???

Thanks! That would be great, because these sites are doing more harm than good. De Beuckelaar also gave me wrong information about FA lenses. As a result I'm now buying my gear in Germany.

I posted a study of Pentax Global sites when the K-01 was introduced. EU and Canada featured it day-of-announcement. Japan and China were a few days later, OZ and others about a week after that. USA didn't even show the camera anywhere until the actual ship date 6 weeks later.

@Kobayashi.K
If I go to
http://my.pentax.eu
the site will guess my country from my IP address and direct me automatically to
http://my.pentax.eu/de

Does it redirect you to an old site if you are surfing from the Netherlands or Belgium?
I can't try out without faking my IP address.

EDIT:
I just tried it out.
The personalized page my.pentax seems to exist for Germany and France only.
But you can go directly to
http://pentax.eu/nl
or
http://pentax.eu/be
In both cases, initial language will be English. Choosing the language selection at the bottom of the page will take you to the old (non EU) sites. There seems not to be a dutch site yet. But if it is only for the language, not country specific offers, as a French Swiss or a Wallon from Belgium you can choose
http://pentax.eu/fr
This will lead you to the French site.

If I log in from the U.S., it stays on https://my.pentax.eu/ and at the bottom of the page, it says Pentax Ricoh Imaging France SAS.

Oops! If the French are managing it, it might take ages before we get something in Dutch, if ever. ;-)

I have looked up my original mail to get the text (translated to English):

Q - Please can you tell me if the 'FA 43mm F1.9 Limited' is still available.
A - I'm sorry to tell you that the Pentax lens SMC-FA 43mm f1.9 is already out of production for several years.

So, he suggested that the FA 43mm wasn't available anymore.
Being a newbie at that moment (March 2013) I had to do a lot of research to discover it was not true (maybe out of production but still available).
