Dpreview interview with Ricoh on the upcoming Pentax film camera

Dpreview published their interview with Ricoh on the upcoming Pentax film camera. Here is their conclusion:

“Pentax is making a big bet on the rebirth of film by being the first major manufacturer to commit to making a new film camera in decades. It’s no small thing, as they’ve had to start completely from scratch, recapturing the expertise of retired film-era engineers, reviving or replacing decades-gone supply chains and setting up mass manufacturing to meet global demand for a product more mechanically complex than not only today’s digital cameras but even late-model film cameras with motorized film advance and rewind mechanisms.”
