Their public apology is nice and professional.
Really?

"Went out with the wrong image"

I almost spat my coffee out when I read that.

This is a dreadful response. Looks so weak and reactive. They should have just made a better advert and sent it out.
Well, i agree it must be corrected with the "good" shot, if that story has still any credibility...

Exactly.

The phrase "...the wrong image..." implies there is a correct image.

Why did they not just send out a repeat advert -- including the correct image -- with a small footnote apologising for having sent out an incorrect version first?

Actually, I didn't notice the original email much as I'm not in the market for a K-S1 and don't load email images per default, but I certainly noticed the second email. It reads as if they have been caught out, to be honest.

Appropriate apology IMO.
I'm not quite sure Pentax would have made such an apology before Ricoh ownership.

Fine, move on.

Ned's response would have been something like "Huh? What? What picture?

They should have hired Miley Cyrus and her circustour....





Well it's good now. Maybe they even understand that it is not even smart to photoshop such an image, unless you'r 50+ and still live with your parents.

Don't kid yourself. Miley Cyrus is just fine. It's an act, and she knows exactly what she is doing.

Another marketing misstep... everybody knows that lime and red clash. However, the Blue Cream Soda would go well with Miley's boots.
