This is certainly not meant as a critical comment - but - it seems had Pentax in the 90's developed any sense at all of building the brand image on the historical foundation it might well have survived intact. For whatever reason, though they from time to time created an engineering Masterpiece, it seems they weren't the world's greatest business (men). Ricoh is doing better, but it appears with just a small allocation of funds, a couple MBA's and a consulting contract they could get this completely built and promoted in months, or a year. If you choose not to advertise and market, you at least have to help curious people find you.

The Regionals are equally spotty.

What I don't get is why they're using the domain exclusively to talk about the K-1
I wondered the same thing. As they are clearly adding to the site, maybe coverage of the full Pentax line up will be forthcoming.

I'm just thrilled to see the EI-2000 there.
If they need a picture of the EI-3000 prototype, I may be the only "Pentaxian" who has a prototype.

(I mention that every so often to establish my cred. )
