Now that we know someone has been spreading fake news / lies, it's time to correct the thread title, unless you want to also be guilty of speading lies.

QuoteQuote:
RICOH is focusing its resource on the high added value products such as PENTAX and GR that are appreciated by the existing users and photo hobbyists. RICOH is also a market leader of input devices in the VR or AR market with its "RICOH THETA" where we can see rapid growth, and will keep on expanding the business even more in this field.
With regard to the article about RICOH today | Global | Ricoh

A more truthful thread title would be "Ricoh to concentrate on the high added value products such as PENTAX and GR and Theta". Do you want to change that?

But maybe spreading lies is generating more clicks and fits to special interest groups.

The write-off of 10 billion yen is 91,25 million USD. So the value of Pentax in Ricoh's boos is closing down to zero.

FUD is very difficult to combat, Beholder.

As Jonathan Swift said: "If a lie be believed only for an hour, it hath done its work."

So Pentax will make expensive cameras and lenses for enthusiasts with the added bonus that the poorer amongst us can just buy the expensive camera and use the millions of lenses out there that work perfectly ok on new cameras.

I have more Pentax cameras than I have lenses - five DSLRs and three lenses

Mistral75 explained the report up thread quite nicely. Ricoh wants to repurpose underutilized compact camera tools and factories. Compacts are called consumer cameras in the Nikkei News rumor article. Ricoh plans to use the tools (written down to PV) from compact cameras to make auto cams since they're similar tech. Writing down the Plant & Equipment value on the books makes the new products more easily profitable (capital cost on the books is lower).

However, all the problems long discussed here of scale, distribution, marketing and product starvation at Pentax will still exist; is it worth doing what it will take to make Pentax meaningful; and an issue for the Board to answer is why total Net Income is only 10 B Yen in the first place.

I'm always surprised that people freak out and call anyone with "big cameras" creeps or pervs invading their privacy,
