You know, the new box design is like, really awesome and sexy. Much better than pentax's star wars esque design of the DA line. I really want to see what they'll do to the uninspiring grey accessory boxes, those are some of the worst boxes I've ever seen.

I for one welcome our new Ricoh overlords.

Just to throw a little oil on the fire: I just imported my first DNG's from the k-3 into Lightroom. Which reports the camera make as: RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. Model: PENTAX K-3

Does this mean that all lenses and cameras shall henceforth be categorized as Ricoh in LR? i.e. Do I filter my LR library for a Ricoh FA31 LTD in future versions of LR?

PS> I don't really care as long as things get better.. and I may have to sell my "Pentax" gear soon anyway to finance a super tele or fast tele zoom for my D800e.

Heh. In my experience companies change names when the old one has a bad smell due to non payment of bills. Considering the recent Kodak settlement, maybe I'm not too far off. I for one think Ricoh is doing a fine job so far. The checks have Ricoh on them, the cameras and lenses have Pentax.

Considering that was a Kodak-Ricoh old deal, you're far off.

Keep me in mind for a discussion about your FA31 if you choose to go down that path!

Is there a way to unsubscribe from a discussion untill it's back ontopic? I'm really interested in the results from the HD ltds. And much less about disappearing brand names.
