Ricoh over the line?

Hopefully the case will solve itself.

I am though affected about the whole thing anyhow and will await the outcome. I do not think that RP HQ will care if I buy this camera or not. It would be naive to think that little me would influence anything. I think it's a bit different when a well known Master photographer with many followers and students reacts.

I used the word *bulk ready* since I for many years didn't carry any MF camera. Becoming owner of a 645Z + a few new lenses will in my case mean I'll carry a bulky camera system again. In the past I shot film with 6 x 7 and 645 cameras. I have no other motivation to go MF again except for my wish to print larger maintaining high quality.

That's all for now.

I am a potential buyer of a Pentax 645Z and the bundle of lenses going for it. This would be my first attempt entering the DSLR MF world and I've been looking very much forward to become the owner of this dream camera. The only hurdle I had to overcome was actually if I was *bulk ready* enough. I think I am after all.
Regretfully I was very disappointed reading about a growing shameful case over at Name and shame: ‘Pentax Ricoh Indonesia’ stole my image ? Ming Thein | Photographer

I must admit it affects my very positive opinion about Ricoh being the only serious company left nursing the photographers needs and I really question myself if I should throw my hard earned money in Richos direction.

A very shameful act that seems to be ignored by Ricoh so far. I am definitely going to await the outcome of this case before I pull the trigger.
