P 20mm + O 9-18mm + O 40-150mm + O 12-50mm

a camera made by Olympus for Kodak.

So not really another manufacturer.

Kodak is now just a name like "Vivitar" or "Spiratone"  used to be.

They don't actually make anything.

Is it made by Olympus? The kitlens is not the same as the Olympus ones it seems.

at the filter size for the lens.

It is the old 14-42 in drag.

Filter size is 37mm, same as new 14-42 has. It does look like old 14-42mm but it pulls out like the new one.

and then there is unique aperture range - F3.7-5.3. If it stays in production unit we'll get the fastest kit zoom (at the long end).

There is a bit of mystery in JK Imaging. It may have something in common with General Electric, which also was a brand name for cameras
