Having some issues with Ricoh website

When I visit Ricoh US website to check the selection of lenses for the 645z and K mount, I see all apsc, FF and MF lenses all mixed up.
Lenses

645Z - Mount Lenses
The DA*50-135 is in the selection of lenses for the 645z. What's that?
Do Ricoh staff check their website?

How to I inform Ricoh about that?

Furthermore, the web site doesn’t appear to distinguish the individual lenses by APS-C or full-frame format and they don't indicate compatibilities. The specs indicate angle of view, so it might be possible to deduce the format, but who knows whether they are giving full-frame equivalent AOVs or what. One might conclude that the DA 15mm is good to go on FF. Crazy web site.

The site has a “contact us” form, but it seems to be for general enquiries. I think the web site has had problems for some time.

Just use B&H’s site if you want see selection of lenses and by different formats, they know how to run a website.

Seems like they treat their websites al little bit "stiefmütterlich". For example on the K-1-Lab special site, which I find quite good, there's no entry for the HD DA F* 50mm 1.4, thought it's meant to be a flagship lense.

Same story, different day. Their website has always been abysmal. They have had feedback. They are simply not competent. It's sad, but at least the folks in Japan seem to have a clue.

Another alternative is our lens search:

Pentax Lens Search | PentaxForums.com

It makes finding current gear quite easy.
