Pentacoh or Rictax?

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.

Pentacoh sounds like a bible-basher and Rictax sounds like something prescribed by a doctor who you hope has warm hands :biglaugh:

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

Thom Hogan is currently half-speculating about Nikon taking over Kodak, which would probably make Nikak. Kokon might be useful as a name for filters.

Better than Kodkon - though maybe if they changed that slightly and made it Godgon.

On a serious note, I think we have lost Ricoh to CR Kennedy now.....I wonder if they can assassinate the Ricoh brand in Australia as well?

Oh shit.

We were hoping that the distributorship would go the other way.

I certainly was hoping it would go the other way as well....but CR Kennedys is the larger business and must be doing pretty well with Pentax Medical. Whereas Tasco is really a bino company
