Pentax, The Future of Photography
PENTAX, originally founded as Asahi Optical Joint Stock Co., has a rich history that began with the production of eyeglass lenses. Over time, the company applied its advanced lens polishing and coating techniques to create various products, including projection lenses, binoculars, and camera lenses.
In a significant milestone in 1952, PENTAX introduced the "Asahiflex I," Japan's first domestically produced single-lens reflex camera. This marked a pivotal moment for PENTAX, transitioning from a lens manufacturer to a globally recognized pioneer in single-lens reflex cameras.
