Ricoh is going to need to find a different strategy than dropping prices in order to survive in the camera market. They need a positive buzz. It's an enthusiast market now. Their offerings are very good, but the brand is dismissed by almost everybody. Why buy into a brand with a very uncertain future? Even if they have the intention to just continue on the current path they are falling behind quickly. IQ is class leading but right now the market is about operational speed. Fast shooting at 20fps with quick fool proof AF that can do neat stuff like eye detection and reliable focus tracking. People are more demanding than they used to be because with other brands they can nail it like a pro without being one. This broadens the scope of subjects they can shoot considerably and if Pentax can't do it they blame the camera not their lack of skill. Right now they are making camera's for an ever shrinking customer base. Going after price hunters won't help them because digital camera's is not a growing market any more. If you want to grow or even remain stable you need to entice people from other brands to go to Pentax. For that you need to be able to match their offerings in all aspects, not just IQ. Incorporate advances made in mirrorless camera's in dslrs, while retaining distinct dslr advantages. So you have to be able to use live view with fast on sensor PDAF and shoot fast in electronic shutter mode. Get the camera's up to speed in the video department. Work hard to develop a hybrid VF. Ricoh needs to partner up with a consumer electroncis company in order to gain access to state of the art technology need to bring it's line up up to date. Right now it is lagging at least four years.

With the Christmas discount that's $300 off a DFA24-70 F2.8. Sold.
My credit card hates you Adam, but I don't.
I needed better glass before I pick up a K-1 when its replacement finally comes out anyways.

the deal that hooked me is still active as far as I can tell

B & H is selling the K 3 II and its battery grip for $836.95 which is less than $7.00 - over the price of the K 3 II ( $829.99) alone

Holy cow... the D-FA70-200 is @ $1496.95 @ BH

Pentax HD PENTAX D FA* 70-200mm f/2.8 ED DC AW Lens 21330 B&H

I would be all over this one if I did not have one already. And I paid full price. I dont like shooting wide open but dared to get one shot @f2.8 day before to see what it offers in the field... boy o boy it is sharp @2.8.
