We haven't actually seen a production model yet. IIRC there was only about a three week rumor window of the hociR brand on the K3 - the evaluation copies issued under the NDA's reportedly were printed PENTAX.
The product photos on ricoh-imaging.com have nothing but "smiley face" Pentax on the camera. That may change, however, as the hociR is known to be devious and shrewd.

Of course, that in itself may be reason enough to not buy. The hociR should have learned from the good folk at Mazda. For several model years the Mazda 3 wore the smiley face of shame and frequent derision.

So far, no branding on the LCD frame, but who is to say what will display in the VIEWFINDER!!! The hociR is very bad and would do such a thing.

I dunno, Joel, looks like one of your fellow employees has a bad case of crabs.
Where in the world did you get a photo of Brian? He works in the seafood dept. As for sleepers, they are very basic no frills models. They were added when the newer DOT rules kicked in. our drivers used to be able to get back home from anywhere, now the longer routes need layovers. Our company loves to batch out trucks overweight, sometimes way overweight!! Used to load trailers and it was a constant fight with the trans. dept on that score! Deer guards just make sense for us. A damaged truck means delivery delays, poss product damage or loss and the complete upset of some very tight schedules. Saved us 10x the cost of the equipment!! Plus they write it into the cost of the equipment so it can be spread over the service life of the vehicle.

It was on the company website.

Along with lots of other minions.

Probably has your mug there too.

Don't you ever go to your company web page?

Here: PDI - Employees

No hociR there!

Not willingly! I work there, I don't need to look at it on my off time. And no photo of me there.

It is time to start with the M Series again. Maybe...MX!! That will be sure to confuse the Google search engines.

Merde, merde et merde ... hociR gets TIPA 2014 award and I have so many months of warranty left on the SPAM machine, argh ... rather the K-5 "Classic" that is. Promised myself that I would outlast that warranty before another APS-C body upgrade. Solution would be something Family Friendly appearing ... dream on. Bueller, Bueller, Bueller ...

I had the same thing, except the sandwich part, and the tuna part, and the salad.

Remember, hociR is going to watermark all photos from new production ones with their logo. It is their devious plan to......

I had forgotten all about Cody's reply. "you're all singling me out and attacking me because of the threads that I make."

Well, DUH!

Oh my.

I went away for almost a year during that Hulabaloo and must have missed that one.
