Facts about the Pentax brand name under Ricoh

Ricoh are buying the the manufacturing and design assets not just the name (as, say, Cosina did with Voigtlander) so the only thing that really changes for the photographic division is the ownership. As stated in the documentation we have seen to date, there is continuity of manufacture and design. If I suddenly, (and purely hypothetically!) bought BMW it would not suddenly become 'only a brand name'.

The companies that manufacture Leica cameras and Leica microscopes are totally separate but still both trade under the Leica brand.

Company ownerships change all the time. Welcome to the 21st Century (although this was all happening in the 20th Century and 19th as well...)

Then don't buy one. I have an E-P2 and a GH2. Great cameras.

I also shoot an M3 for film and a K5. Also great cameras.

I'd be willing to bet you that you would not be able to tell the difference between and 13 X 19 print from an E-P2 and a K5. Now if you are printing larger than that you probably could.
