Description

Pentax is a brand name that the Japanese multinational imaging company Ricoh uses for photography and optics products. Until 2007, Pentax had been an independent company in the photographic industry for close to a century. It merged with Hoya, a Japanese optical glass manufacturer, in 2007 and was acquired by Ricoh in 2011. The company now operates as Ricoh Imaging Company.
Pentax is best known for its SLR cameras and lenses, notably the Asahiflex from 1952, the first SLR for 35mm film from Japan. Pentax also manufactured medium format film cameras.
Pentax still manufactures DSLRs and photographic lenses today.
