mpb.com, not even aware of Pentax products

Just found this site... All photographic products...except, Pentax and/or Ricoh products.
Or do we really care anyway, because we're doing fine on our own anyway...!

Photo & Video Equipment Brands - mpb.com

That's possible. Ricoh may not have the staff to prospect every corner of distribution channels, and that deal may not qualify. The less a prospect qualifies to some buying model criteria, the lower the chance of success and the less profitable is the sales adventure. In sales, there are customers that you avoid because you know it is going to cost you a lot and they'll buy nothing or at least not enough relative to your commercial effort.

They appear to accept Pentax gear under their sell/trade logo, they may just not have enough of it to justify selling yet:

They appear to be a used seller. Like KEH...The link is to the UK site, they have a US site too. The US site has 3 FA 645 lenses listed if you search Pentax...

Even KEH doesn't have much Pentax stock these days...

What he said ^ ^ ^

They don't sell new. No blame for Ricoh on this one.

MPB (UK) do turn over some Pentax MF equipment, more than most UK sellers - over the past few months they've had a Z, a couple of D's (possibly more), many of the FA 645 lenses and an AF160FC Ringflash (which I bought )
