They came first with that device and design idea what we call today an SLR design.

No they didn't. They popularized it, in no small part by being the first to make it easy to use, and theirs may have been the first that was easy to find in many parts of the world, but they weren't first to bring it to production and market. See Exakta (first) and Contax (first with pentaprism).

If I recall correctly, Pentax was the first to use a lever instead of a knob for advancing the film.
