Pentax Now Officially a Ricoh Company

Back in July, we reported that Hoya had agreed to sell the Pentax camera business to Ricoh for roughly $124 million. The deal was completed over this past weekend, and now the business is officially called the “Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company”. Ricoh wanted Pentax — currently the 10th largest digicam brand — for its SLR technologies, so we might be seeing some increased activity from Ricoh and Pentax in the DSLR market very soon.
