    Pentax loyalists stuck with the company through hard times. Now the head of Pentax USA is giving them a voice.

    After a tumultuous few years under the ownership of Hoya, the Pentax camera division was sold off to Ricoh in 2011. The company's faithful fans (Pentaxians, as they're called) have no doubt been wary of another corporate buyout, and wondering what the future holds for their favorite brand.

    One of the first major changes was the speedy exit of Ned Bunnell, President of Pentax Ricoh's US operations. Bunnell, who had been with the company since 2005, was replaced by new Executive Vice President Jim Malcolm. Formerly Director of Corporate Marketing at Sony, Malcolm had most recently worked as a consultant with Ricoh, facilitating Pentax's transition into the company. Bunnell had been a friendly if occasionally divisive figurehead for the old Pentax, and many were curious to see what the new boss would bring to the table.
    A good read for Pentaxians.
