Originally, Asahi Pentax produced lenses for several camera manufacturers. In 1951 the company began to manufacture its own cameras. The first of these, the Asahiflex, was also the first Japanese 35mm SLR. The 'Pentax' trademark was acquired by Asahi from Zeiss Ikon in 1957. Many Pentax cameras were also sold under the 'Honeywell' name, by the Honeywell company, which was a distributor, not a manufacturer. In 2002 Asahi company was renamed to Pentax (see post-2002 cameras in that section). On March 31, 2008, Pentax merged with the Hoya Corporation. You can find quite a bit of information about Pentax SLR cameras at Bojidar Dimitrov's Pentax K-Mount Page.
