Pentax and Ricoh cameras listed side by side at the Pentax Web Store
I don't know when this actually happened, but while price-checking a Pentax-Ricoh camera, I noticed that the Pentax Web Store now shows Pentax and Ricoh digital cameras side-by-side. Here is an example for the hybrid (mirrorless) cameras and here's another example for the P&S fixed-lens cameras. It is not often that we get this kind of a "marriage" between camera manufacturers, so it's interesting to watch it develop like a reality TV show almost :)
The price-check I mentioned just above? The white Ricoh GRD IV special edition is currently going for $450 at Adorama and B&H Photo. Only the white special edition goes for $450. The standard edition (black model) goes for its usual prices... For a refresher on the camera, check its list of completed reviews.
