Our copier tech pronounces it Ree-co if that means anything.....

Still hoping for a comment from the OP. *

*Blatant attempt at steering the thread back to anything resembling whatever it was first about. And adding a post since no one has posted for over 12 hours.......

I think this thread was a drive-by posting.

But based on posting history the OP should be back around in about 6 months. Sort of like a comet?

the i would be like from igloo, and the ou is from orange but slightly prolonged.
Dang! There is a lot of regional variation on the pronunciation of both igloo and orange. I know people who would say that "Thet eskee'mo sat in his ee'glue and et that whole arange!"

This is as bad as figuring out how to say Linux (the computer operating system).


In the past, even Linus Torvald has changed. (He used to say Leenux with a long u.)

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.
Some funny responses in this thread. I've been wondering what a name change would do.

When I think of the name Pentax I get the feeling of innovation and quintessential qualities. When I think of the name Ricoh I get the feeling of wealth or being well off. Canon feels like a powerful name. I'm no expert on the meaning of names but I'm wondering. I think Pentax and Ricoh should be corporate partners and not be engulfed by the other.

Edit: Sorry for violating a forum rule, I thought it was interesting and relevant to the topic.

...the Pentax Forums equivalent of the fillibuster! A monument to a foolish original post.

For me NC is kind of a grey area as to being "The South".
Do NC women say "You can have me", or "Y'all can have me"?
