I must have missed when someone said Asahi made Ricoh cameras.
It was my fault, for bringing up the Asahi logos on the old Pentax SLRs.

True, but that thread is in a completely different class. It's useful.

That's very gracious of you Todd, but the fact that Asahi included their company name as well as the camera name in the branding is precisely the point.

Asahi & Pentax (Manufacturer and product name)

Ricoh & Pentax (Manufacturer and product name)

There is no difference.
I am rather stunned that anyone sees a difference between the branding on a K3 and that on an ME Super.

I think a sticker with "Trolololololol" will be the best! I'd rock one

Was it 'Bravo Ravioli' or 'Ravioli by Bravo' ?

I am finding this thread very useful. I read several pages on my phone while waiting in the doctor's office. There is little or no actual content but I found there was actually more pertinent information than I found in the several 'news' magazines I browsed through first.

Just wanted to say thanks. Carry on................

What do the Kardashians think about the whole "Ricoh-on-the-back" issue? Did the 'news' magazines say?

I have always considered ravioli to be the miniaturized equivalent of a cheese sandwich, so you are good to go.

The Kardashians shoot Canon. They don't think.

Ricoh starts with 'R' and ravioli starts with 'R' so I guess it's fair game for discussion here.

Wow! The difference is that Asahi as a manufacturer did not have separate camera line called Asahi cameras with a separate research and development team.
Asahi does not = Ricoh. I am not surprised at the lack of critical thinking here, but the level of denial is downright embarrassing.
