Reminds me of that line from "Dances With Wolves " when they find the bones of the dead wagon driver with 3 arrow sticking out of his carcass. (Apparently film producers don't know that arrow making is a relatively tedious chore and one always retrieves one's arrow given a chance) . But I digress.

The wagon driver laughs and says..
"Someone back East is sitting there wondering 'Now why don't he write'."

This sounds more like the Twilight Zone episode where the aliens start a ruckus in a suburb then sit back and watch the locals tear themselves apart! And I promised myself I'd stay away from this thread!

I have been waiting for the announcement of the k3 for some time.Now that the camera is out and seeing the pics and seeing "ricoh on the back of the screen turns me off.Only a matter of time before we see Ricoh on the front of the camera.I think ricoh just shot themselves in the foot.My reasoning behind this is I make a living in photography.I shoot lots of weddings and It seems more people ask on what camera I'am using.I have had quite a few people turn me down because I shoot with pentax.They just know canon and nikon.I l was turned down on other major sporting events because I shoot with Pentax.This all happened a few years back and I will admit that some people are starting to recognize that pentax can keep up with the big guys.If Ricoh puts their name in front of the camera I feel it will throw them back to the dark ages..I'am quite happy with my k5s and all my pentax glass and will continue to shoot pentax,but hesitating to by new equiptment because of this matter.I do also own nikon and canon slr's but I'am a pentaxian and as long as it says Pentax on the front of the camera I'am happy.
The new K3 DOES NOT HAVE RICOH on the back.

I'm pretty sure it does.
Ps. SHOUTING doesn't make wrong statements right.

This thread now bores me. We need a unicorn, a cute cat, and a puppy.

Well, I don't like it. Ri-coh sounds too Spanish. We all know what they are like. ;-)



OMG I'd totally buy that!

Wow, this thread is still exploding. Pentax is a subsidiary of Ricoh. If they want to put "Ricoh" on a camera, big deal, they own pentax. Don't like it? Buy the camera and sand the name off. Or better yet, buy a Nikon. They make considerably better camera bodies. I know. I owned several of both. It's like a someone who won't buy "Bud Ice" beer. Bud Ice beer is not made by Budweiser. It's made by the Anheuser-Busch company. But you've been drinking it for 15+ years. This whole idea is silly. Smart consumers buy high end products based on thorough, performance based research. Not a name.

What an idiot! I went through 25 pages of nonsense here, and the only worthwhile thing posted was a damn bunny with a waffle on his head.

Regards!
