Good to hear that Pentax is bringing in some fresh blood. Hopefully this new Bunnel guy will bring some experience he has from Canon marketing and business. Canon may not make the best cameras and lenses...but no one can deny their marketing prowness. They can convince a frostbitten eskimo to buy icecream!

Eh, actually he's been with Pentax for awhile. He's been the VP of marketing. At any rate I think he has a good feel for the "pulse" of the industry, and the market.

Here's his BLOG
