PENTAX: the brand
PENTAX was founded almost 100 years ago in Tokyo, 1919. The company's founder Asahi Kogaku Goshi Kaisha initially began producing lenses for optical glasses but later moved into consumer camera products. Their first camera, the Asahiflex, was launched in 1952 and since then the brand has made a name for itself as one of the largest global producers of optical products. The success of their PENTAX camera range led the company to change their name to PENTAX Corporation to celebrate their most popular and well known camera.
Since 2006, PENTAX have merged with Hoya, an optical glass making brand, and been purchased by Ricoh, who still use the PENTAX brand name for their camera products. Throughout name changes and the evolution of their company structure, one thing has remained constant - the PENTAX name is synonymous with high quality yet affordable cameras and camera accessories .
