Pentax

Unless they get too big for themselves, this is where you can talk about the "other" brands of DSLR's: Konica Minolta / Sony, Pentax / Samsung, Olympus, Horseman, etc.

The Pentax photographic business has been owned since 2007 by Hoya and today Pentax was sold to Ricoh.

This is rather interesting news...Ricoh being one of the larger OEM manufacturer's for compact cameras and also having a few very interesting cameras of their own.....GRD and GXR...

I wonder if this means Tasco will now be Pentax in Australia or CR Kennedy will continue to hold the agency.
