Not a bad idea. Apple could buy Pentax (in fact the whole of Ricoh) out of their loose change. They have about US $180 billion in cash sitting around doing nothing at the moment.
A white 645Z with an Apple logo on it (i645?) would be cute.
The only Pentax product that would fit into the Apple line would be the Q-family; merging an iPhone with a Q-S1 would make the Q barely discernible!

And to those who complain about having the words "Ricoh" clearly visible on a Pentax camera .... once Apple got done you'd have a hard time finding the Pentax name at all.

What about a cooperation between Apple and Ricoh?
How about "Apple buys both Ricoh AND Canon!!"?

the only thing I can imagine going through this channel is a professional care service for the U.S. or full availability of Pentax / Ricoh branded products at some major U.S. retail chain

I asked Google images and it will not happen.

This is why this place is so entertaining. Some guy that nobody knows makes a claim about "ground breaking" technology making history and 24 pages later Apple owns the world.

Ground breaking is a big statement, and I doubt we see anything really ground breaking. Olympus already had pixel shift, so you can rules that out. Making history is a lot easier to do. Some people make it by doing great things. Some people do it by doing stupid things, so he could make history.

New GR is my guess. Something about the new sensor shift tech. Maybe a new piece of glass or two.

GR- better guts, evf (I can dream, but doubt it) perhaps and EVF attachment you can plug into a hot shoe like thing that does video? more manual style controls like you have seen on Fuji x100 line.

Or just an announcement about using a sony sensor on the FF and some more FF specs.


who knows...
