Ricoh / Pentax cameras in store displays!

With Ricoh's ownership of Pentax the market is seeing an expansion of their presence in brick and mortar retail stores. Many people are seeing Pentax and Ricoh cameras for the first time in department stores (Target) and camera stores (Gordon's in Carson City and Reno, Nevada). I think this is brilliant and deserves applause!

Let's start a themed thread showcasing Pentax and Ricoh cameras on display and for sale. My hope is that the presence will grow to such a point that this thread becomes a yawner. But for now, ask yourself how often you see "one of our own" front and forward?

The rules are simple. You must have taken the photo and when posting it here you must state where the product was displayed. The Pentax and/or Ricoh name must be clearly seen. I hope it doesn't break any forum rules if I say that the picture can be taken with any camera - even the one in your phone.

I'll start. Here's a Ricoh WG-20 at Target in Carson City, Nevada.



Anyone seen a Pentax or Ricoh in their neighborhood?

This thread comes up right as I'm outside of the country on holiday so I can't go and take a picture, but I saw a Pentax K-50 carousel display at Cardinal Camera's Lansdale PA store. IIRC others have mentioned seeing this type of display at other stores.

I saw this today in Target as well. Looked like they had sold one of them

ZX-30? Hoya display cards? Is that a K-7 with the colorful feature sticker over the card door?
