A temporary gap in archiving occurred late yesterday that has since been corrected. Boards will take about an hour to fully catch up.

If Ricoh had taken over Pentax around the time Sony took over Minolta, would they have stood a better shot?
I kind of feel that Pentax was too far gone by the time Ricoh stepped in, where Sony took over Minolta at a time when there was still a lot of R&D to do, and killed it when mirrorless came along.

Is there a future for Pentax or Ricoh outside photocopiers?
