Via the PentaxForums and, the excerpt is as follows:-

HOYA's CEO, Suzuki revealed his idea for Pentax digital camera department:
"Don't think keeping (the Pentax digital camera sector) in the HOYA Group forever,
Let it merge with other companies, or independent is also OK "

It is further mentioned that the K-x will be the turning point between success or failure of Pentax (the brand) and the sales result will change the faith of Pentax! (What? The K-x is the last chance given? And, K-7 is not the main project with key concern?)

Hence, the stance taken by the CEO and Hoya about the whole Pentax camera business is clear, that is, it is a business that can have or not to have, which simply means it is just a "don't care". So, where are commitment and determination then?? (None actually, I'm afraid, very unfortunately..)
