Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Hopefully it's patented and Canon pay Ricoh lots of money for the right to use it.

This would be great if Ricoh then somehow used the money to strengthen the Pentax brand but for some reason I don't think that's likely!

They all stole that as well, the ME-F (1981) was the first SLR to use a TTL AF system, including the idea to put the motor in the lens - a 35-70/2.8...
