While I was viewing my gallery I saw this photo and it said it was taken by k200d pentax corporation!

I had a Pentax optio 430RS, (actually it is still on the shelf). In the Exif data it has "Asahi Optical Co.,Ltd"; a year later I bought the *ist-D (still have that too) which has "Pentax Corporation". That was when the rot set in

Up to the K5 series the Pentax signature to recognise its EXIF Maker notes was AOC.  Under Ricoh the ID has changed to "Pentax".
