Even if these promotions are limited to Japan it is solid evidence of commitment to Pentax.

They are certainly building their web presence considering the various "special sites" they've been working on over the last couple of years. All seem to be Japanese first releases.

Pentax is doomed! I've heard that for many many years.

If you don't speak Japanese, Pentax is not for you .

?????? | PENTAX official
You don't have to speak Japanese, one twitter user captured the spirit of PENTAX official site pretty well!

I had to laugh for a few minutes, but seriously I do think the person is onto something here and I'm not talking about apparent heavy metal-doom-PENTAX connection.

This seems like a combination of lighthearted humor (no smartass) and enthusiasm without paying much attention if at all for making clean corporate web site.

At least we see some marketing efforts. It would be great if they can make something for global consumption.

Only for Japan, unfortunately. They are probably considered themself just a local company and so they want to stay.

They have a sensible market share in Japan. Do they anywhere else?
