Well, at least the suspense is over. Hoya was only after certain parts of Pentax-cameras are not core to Hoya's operations. Hopefully Pentax blends in well for Ricoh- I would like Pentax to continue innovating and not become redundant. Pentax does have a couple of features that NONE of the competitors have.
