Try the same link now. The branding has changed to Ricoh.
You called it.. Will be interested to see if other countries websites follow.

*Not* product branding.
Just holding company name, for Pete's sake.

Btw, something ELSE has changed too — many more FA lenses are now listed as officially available.

I was only saying the brand at the top of the page was likely to change to Ricoh. Wasn't talking about the brand of the cameras themselves.

Anyway, this is kind of off-topic and it was my fault. Apologies.

Don't need to apologise. I guess we're all antsy, because all new what is served before Pentaxians vested in brand in the last 2+ years are company name changes.

Well yes, I said "new". Development under Hoya and tweaks upon bodies developed then, still feed us all.
By this I mean no disrespect. But we have gone through such conversations millions of times. Best is to shut up and wait till October, I guess.

Btw, is there and photo show then? Will Pentax Forums editors be interviewing Ricoh Imaging representatives anytime soon?
What's the plan?

Sure looks like PENTAX on the front of that K-50.

Calling the Ricoh Imaging website a brand of dSLR is like calling the Proctor&Gamble website a brand of laundry detergent

And of course, the "Pentax" and "Ricoh" names are new, much newer than the K-30, Q7 etc's hardware

Well, to compare with political science terminology, the situation is very much like upheavals in some banana republic.
