Well, what shall he say? They have barely any money or resources.
Their engineers would be thrilled to do something new but they just can't.
Maybe they hope that they can survive till CaNikon have jumped the DSLR ship and then they'' harvest the breadcrumbs in that segment.

Well basically I guess he's trying to put on a brave face in what you say is a difficult situation ...... however, it might have been better saying nothing at all about it. ........ I'm still convinced that Ricoh could have injected a little more money for their common good ..... a company like Ricoh knows about business and returns on investment ....... nothing in .... very little out.
Have they still have stocks of lenses they want to see sold?
Canikon will be producing certain higher range DSLRs for three to five years to come yet ....... but they won't be so competitively priced.

The ones who will sell their mirrorless after they sold their DSLR systems and then coming back to DSLR again, might be just the number of clients Pentax still has - or at least can handle in the future. I agree, some strong substances must have been abused before running such a bewildered statement - but hey, what kind of fun else do you have as Ricoh rep?
I don't know executive who will remain with Pentax without some form of doping, given the status of their camera sales...
The title is wrong. The actual claim is that some people will be switching back to DSLRs - with the implication that Pentax will be able to continue being a DSLR brand. And that's on the short term; they talk about 2-3 years.
