Pentax to skip PMA expo? [U]

Pentax pulls out of PMA digital imaging expo

(Update with PMAI response) Pentax has pulled out of this weekend's PMA show, with no explanation given, joining Canon and Leica in abandoning the show, according unofficial report on Friday. Whether this has to do with the change of venues from Las Vegas in 2009 to Anaheim this year is unknown. The decision is said to be that of Pentax specifically and not its parent company Hoya's.

PMA is the largest photography trade show in the US. When Canon announced its non-attendance last fall, it cited the show's narrow focus for its absence. As expected, the large company's decision had a ripple effect in the industry by leading companies to hold more out-of-show unveilings for major products. [via Impress]

Update: The PMAI says Pentax is still at the show but has a technology suite, not a booth on the floor.
