About Pentax

Originally a Japanese optics company, producing sport optics and cameras, Pentax Corporation merged with Hoya Corporation in March, 2008. Currently, Hoya is the brand name for the company while Pentax is a business division. Founded in 1919 by Kumao Kajiwara in a suburb of Tokyo, the company's original name was Asahi Kogaku Goshi Kaisha. Its first product was spectacle lenses, which it still produces today. By 1938, the company changed its name to Asahi Optical Company, Limited. Before, during and after World War II, the brand manufactured camera lens and optics, for which it became famous.

In the 1950s, Pentax began exporting lenses, later becoming one of the world's largest optical companies. Today, the brand produces Pentax binoculars, Pentax cameras, spectacle lenses as well as high quality, affordable and rugged outdoor gear for travelers, hunters and birding watchers. Expanding globally since 1962, Pentax has offices in Asia, North America and Europe. In 2002, the company was renamed Pentax Corporation.

Pentax's optical lens expertise has been tapped by Hoya Corporation in improving its medical-related business. Pentax is world renown for its high quality lens and optics. Pentax lens can be used with other brand name camera backs; however, Pentax also produces high quality camera backs as well for a complete Pentax camera package.
