How do you figure Ned Bunnell buying a Leica is going to generate revenue?

When I brought my Nikon in to work at Olympus I was scorned by the Japanese.

An interesting blog. While i'm sure Ned Bunnell has quite a collection of cameras being a photographer for so many years, writing a blog like that is like Willie G. Davidson buying a Honda and then writing a glowing review in a motorcycle mag.

Once again USA Pentax marketing makes a bid for being the dumbest group to ever hold onto their jobs. And this time it's right from "The Man himself". Promoting another manufacturer on your web site is laughable. Anybody else notice the kudos Ned sends out to B & H? I'm sure it's my paranoia that makes me think that was done in hopes of atoning for some things said in our now forgotten and infamous deleted threads.

This sort of incompetence makes me worry about Pentax's future more than anything else.
