    My old K1000 keeps on ticking, Hopefully Ricoh keeps up the Pentax trend

    I knew Pentax will go the way of Minolta very soon. I just dont see Pentax surviving in the DSLR market; and their P&S cameras dont add value over Canon, Olympus, Nikon, Fuji, Sony, etc.

    Now that Fuji and Oly use SD, Sony has dropped MS, I expect bigger share of the market by them. Kodak exited the DSLR market a few years back, Sony took over Minolta, now a little known brand takes over a major player... Canon and Nikon will soon be the only survivors.
