The way Hoya have kept Pentax as a unity proves that they have had no plans for separating and selling off the camera division. They have even kept the Pentax medical dept intact and not fusing it with Hoyas own. If Hoya sells off Pentax, and there are no reason to assume so, they will sell the whole of Pentax.....
Hoya seems to be doing ok with Pentax which is probably good news to all of us. Hoya is a very big optical glass manufacturer which is a related industry. It's not like they are some big conglomerate that just decided to get into the camera business because the other guys sell cameras too. There also seems to be a bit of distance being put between Pentax and Samsung with the new camera not using a Samsung sensor. I would agree that Hoya intends to make Pentax a profitable business. Their actions seem to indicate that.

Hoya got Pentax after that kind of company (what their name again?) invested into Pentax and massively weighted to sell to another company, raking the money. Good for Hoya.

But guys, that financial operations already happened. That was a couple years ago.
