Ricoh numbers are down. Ricoh imaging numbers are up.
But you realize that if 94% of the company is hemorrhaging money, 6% of the company doing ok isn't "good news" right?

I predict that DSLR's will exist in 50 years (I don't do predictions longer than that).
Optical finders will not go out of fashion.
Certainly for the hipsters of 2066. Most other people will use the heads up display on their contact lenses

Incorrect quoting; it should be:
QuoteQuote:
<Highlights>
* Bolstered digital SLR camera range
PENTAX K-70, an all-weather model for outdoor shooting

* Launched non-GPS-based indoor positioning system service
First offering was service for medical facilities

Fortunately, the Ricoh Group is not hemorrhaging money; their aggregated operating profit decreased, but it's a profit nevertheless (of 10.8 billion yen)

But every new type of cameras (like theta) are a Richo and in future of 10 or 20 years that´s only Ricoh left.
As long as the leading design of the K-5, the K-mount and P-TTL would be kept, ... honestly i wouldnt care.

I didnt see such a sentence in the document(s)... I guess the real deal here is the RICOH Theta and the GR... At least Theta is selling like hotcake and it would sell loads more if a bit cheaper.
Our partners in crime arent sleeping anyway. They realized the success of the Theta and now everybody wants to make a 360deg-Camera... I hope on patent money for RICOH Imaging here...

Still funny. When people SWA the Pentax prototype for 360° cam, reactions were VERY negative for the most part.

Now people (most) happy cos it sells.

IIRC, as always, the idea was that Ricoh was "wasting money" by not doing something important, the product which would solve everything, etc.

To keep it short:

So in your oppinion either a very cheap(16MP FF K-5) or very expensive(D5, 1DX II - pendant) PENTAX would be both not important and as such a failure?
So lets hope they do. THX.

You show less logic than a 3 year old child. Nothing of the sort was said.
Please stop trolling.

The magic wand theory?
The one with a 1000us$ introduction price with 24mp FF sensor which will sell well but only bring losses to imaging division? Yeah I know

Ahaha As long as they are happy themselve this should be sufficiant no?

If they were focussing on important stuff like curing illness, trying to stop wars in the word and stop starvation, let's be honest... This forum would not be what it is today !

Who define what is important anyway?
