Pentex photocopier?
Haha.. Dunno. Hope this gives Pentax better direction. I always thought it good as Hoya makes excellent glass. Hoya kept the medical device segment of the business and sold off the camera division.

Didn't know this either...

Ventizz Capital Fund IV L.P. has agreed to acquire 100 percent of the shares of Hasselblad from Hong Kong-based Shriro Group.

Good for Hassie?

Hoya have made Pentax into a toy camera company. Ricoh will make Pentax into a more serious camera for professional. I believe Pentax Q will have a premature death.

Hoya bought Pentax for $ 863 million USD
Ricoh bought Pentax over for $124.2 million USD
Temasek holdings will get a better deal next time

Not the entire Pentax just the 'imaging division', so when you mention both Pentaxes they are not the same thing.
