As somebody said recently about Fuji, photography seems to be only a hobby business for Ricoh. They have big global resources, clever engineers ( their own and those coming from Pentax) and good ideas, but their commitment seems to be intermittent and not long lasting ( see the GXR system )
I wonder if the potential customers for these cameras will trust Ricoh in that aspect. ( i.e. their support for this line of product in a long term basis).
From what I've read from other users, it shouldn't be worse than when Hoya bought Pentax, which really hurt their customer service. I'd like to think that Ricoh has the forethought to offer proper support and a worldwide release of those 645 lenses that are available in Japan only, but who knows?
