Nothing new, even though he seems like a nice guy compared to the ones from CP interview.

At least he says things like "we have the greatest lineup" in reference to the aps-c lens selection. It is nice to hear some enthusiasm.

I'm I the only one who thinks that his head is enormous compared with the body!? Almost looks like a bubble head toy.
Wide angle lenses or interesting person!?

Well there is also South America and Afrika without Pentax, so the world is larger. Good steps making I think.

I wonder if they will have more aggressive (aka lower) prices in the Indian market.

He didn't like being called 'Jimmy-san', that's for sure.

This is obviously an interview from Better Photography Magazine and not Better Motion Photography Magazine.

Prices are a bit on the higher side here in India, Even accounting for the insane taxes and weak rupee.

I am not seeing any limited primes here in India. Also seeing the prices, i feel it would be cheaper for me to buy from international on-line stores.

They need to price it better so that the gear reaches more hands. For the extreme weather conditions in India, Pentax would be tempting at least as a second body for traveling photographers.
