The road travelled by Pentax over the past decade has been rocky, to say the least. Once an independent company, Pentax was acquired by Hoya Corporation in 2006, then bought by Ricoh (yes, that Ricoh) in 2011. As it turned out, the Hoya pairing was less than fruitful, leaving Pentax fans cautiously optimistic for the brand's future under Ricoh.
If the Hoya era effectively ended with the polarizing K-01, then the Pentax K-3 (MSRP $1299.95) marks the true beginning of Ricoh's stewardship.
