My daughter (Ph.D candidate and Whitman scholar) is ROFL right now. You wouldn't believe . . . .

She shoots iPhone.
Does it have "Ricoh" on the back?

I'll never forget the destruction of Tokyo.

Wait, which time are we talking about: Godzilla, Godzilla (again), Godzilla (yet again), one of the times with Gamera, or Akira (twice in one movie), or...
Hey! Don't forget MothRa! (or was MothRa the Anti-Gozirra?). Then there's Rodan, Destroyah, Battra, Mecha Gozirra and Megalon.

And which one had the Thermo-Nuclear Death Breath? (IOW ate too much Limburger).

It has some silly fruit on the back. Goes well with a good cheddar and a white wine though.

I am thoroughly shaken...just found out that the K-3 EXIF lists camera as:
Ricoh IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. Pentax K-3
When displayed on Flickr, the link directs to the Ricoh camera page which contains NO reference to the K-3. Horrors! K-3 photos are not being properly tallied on Flickr and it is Ricoh's fault!!!

For sure. Just try and do a "by camera" lookup for the K-3 on Flickr.

A side-note is that my research turned up that Ned Bunnell shoots a Pentax K-3, despite his departure from Pentax Ricoh Imaging, USA (or whatever they are calling it now). Going away gift, perhaps? Did he object to the Ricoh label on the back?

It never seemed to me that he thought very much of the Pentax label on the front.

Maybe I am just getting old and cranky but today I read through a bunch of other threads, answered a few and in a couple of cases posted cranky answers that I'm not all that proud of. Anyway I just seem to be getting irritated at all the knuckleheads stating stuff that is obviously (IMHO) BS.

So it is really nice to come to this thread and enjoy myself discussing important things like cheese sandwiches with bacon. Which I may have mentioned I'm not allowed to have. Maybe that's why I'm cranky.....

Can you have coffee? Maybe decaf? I find that's a good solution for excessive turkeys.

Hard to know what the fuss is about really. At least in Canada. I got my K series body from a very reputable dealer out near the foothills and there was no sign of Ricoh on the body. Maybe assembled in Denmark?

This thread is taunting you with forbidden bacon and cheese. That will increase the crankiness.
