On the PDML there was this post saying that basically both Contax and Asahi Optical "invented" the name Pentax, independently and without knowing of each other. That's from the owner of the Asahi Optical Historical Club site.

Regarding the supposed end of Ricoh's right to use the Pentax brand... we had this discussion few years ago. That past supposed deadline passed, and Ricoh is still happily using the Pentax brand. Now we have a new supposed deadline... and the story will repeat itself every time someone reads something on the Internet

It's common sense: in 10 years since they took over Pentax Imaging Systems, Ricoh took no step to replace the Pentax brand. On the contrary, they're now promoting Pentax harder than ever.


Who cares for how long Pentax will be made under the name of Pentax! Definitely not I. I want a digital Contax!
