Ricoh Imaging Japan website down?

Seems inaccessible to me today... changes coming? Or worse?

Maybe they were being hosted on servers in Tianjin.

They're updating the site content regarding full frame products. Canon and Nikon are bombing Ricoh web server with millions of queries to prevent Ricoh from releasing their Pentax FF camera.

Nor is it working for me in the UK. Traceroute shows it stopping at an NTT IP address in the USA, so it makes sense that it would only be out for part of the world.

Can't even load Ricoh's global website from the US. But Ricoh USA loads just fine.

Ricoh-us is fine, but they've still got that STUPID thing on their website: " Save big on select PENTAX DSLRs and lenses now through August 31, 2014. "

Guys... that's sort of passed...

website fubars happen all the time. Maybe it's just a crashed database, or the hosting has gone fubar, or 1 character in 1 line of programming. It'll be up again soon and means nothing.
