So, some sort of introduction:

Well, I first met Pentax in the 1980s, I think, with a second-hand Spotmatic, then I got two more, and a sizeable lens collection. An MX saw me move to the K-mount and then I added an LX, which eventually became about five LXs, and they were my professional workhorses for years, and I still love them, using two MXs as lightweight alternatives on occasion too. AF came with an MZ-S, with an MZ-3 as backup, but the LX bodies stayed my favourites. Finally I got a DSLR (after using a cheap Pentax digital compact to play about with digital) in the shape of a K10D, which is now the backup to a K3.

All this time I also loved Ricoh compacts, carrying a GR1v and a GR21 (backed up by a GR10). Now these have, sort of, given way to a GR, GX200 (to keep in the car, because you can feed it AAAs in a pinch) and the wonderful GXR that should never have been canned. So the Ricoh purchase of Pentax struck me as good news right away.

Medium and Large formats had me using other suppliers, but in 35mm/APS-C, Pentax and Ricoh have always been 80% or so of what I've used. So, roll on the FF...
