Is Ed both, internet expert and fan?

It depends on the day.

I like Ed and I think he is sincere, but he certainly has a tendency to rant about different things. Some days, his Pentax gear is awesome, other days it can hold a candle to Fuji gear. Next thing you know, he'll be buying a D810 and singing its praises.

He may very well be sincere, but from the two or so videos of him I'd tried to watch, I concluded that he can't hold on to a thought long enough to complete a sentence. He jumps around from topic to topic without finishing to say what he started. Judging from your own comment, it appears that he can't hold on to a decision for any length of time either.

Financial report from Ricoh...

Ricoh today presented their new financial report for the third quarter ending december 3th.

You can find them here. https://www.ricoh.com/IR/


Again there is no mention of Pentax in the report. There is mention of GRII, WG-40 series and the succes of the Theta.


The page 10 shows this. Put it in a twee, so I could share this easily.
https://twitter.com/RonHendriks/status/694161947852476416?s=07

In one of the report about the group Other, that contains the camera business there is mention of the profit coming from the lease segment and camera's are not mentioned.
"Other Sales
in the Other segment decreased by 9.3% as compared to the previous corresponding period, to 81.1 billion due to sale of San-ai apparel business and so on. As a result of increase in profit of leasing business and so on, operating profit in the Other segment increased significantly as compared to the previous corresponding period, to 2.0 billion."


Finding the right figures and what they mean isn't easy. Next to camera's there are some other businesses in this section. They are probably mail or only for the Japanese market.
<Other> Other 28,824 27,403 -1,421 -4.9 -1,370 -4.8 Percentage of sales (%) 5.45.0
Domestic 23,641 23,407 -234 -1.0 -234 -1.0
Overseas 5,183 3,996 -1,187 -22.9 -1,136 -21.9
The Americas 1,658 1,251 -407 -24.5 -454 -27.4
Europe, Middle East and Africa 2,110 1,380 -730 -34.6 -629 -29.8
Other 1,4151,365-50-3.5

So not easy to read, but the Europe sales, probably only camera, went down with 34,6 %! That is a major decrease! Not completely un expected.


Ricoh looks like the company that will get heavy into the Pentax brand!

@RonHendriks1966 if you dont like FF or dont want one, fine for you..No one force you to buy one! But keep this lame try for your self. I think Ricoh knows better then you how to run a company and how to reach their goals. You can play with your toys if you want, but let the pros do their work.

Time to put this thread out of its misery, and that seems like a fitting epitaph for it.
