Wakashiro Shigeru interview: K1, deep dive technology

Interesting, lengthy and deep dive K1 technology interview of Wakashiro Shigeru, Ricoh Imaging Co., Ltd. Products Division, Product Planning Department. A nice read about the K1's evolution that should wet the appetites of those of you counting down the days till the one you preordered finally lands on your doorstep.

Nice article. I don't recognise the faces that were with Pentax before Ricoh's takeover. Anyone knows what happened to them?

That's because you don't know all the faces.
At least Mr. Tetsuo Hosokawa and Mr. Shigeru Wakashiro were with Pentax in 2008:
