Asahi Optical Company 100 years!

From its beginning in 1919, Asahi Optical produced the finest optical glass for telescopes binoculars and lenses. In 1951, they introduced the Asahiflex, the first Japanese slr camera, for sale from 1952.

This is a new page named Pentax. It will bring the highlights of the history of the company from the start till today, also analyzing the strong and the weak points of this history. 

Under construction..  Sorry for taking your time. A project for september? (October, may be. Or November.)(Or next September?)

While waiting, you can enjoy some presentations and interviews concerning newsand visions from spring/summer 2020.

Here is the camera map containing (almost) every international model from 1952 till 2019. My collection contains every single one from the start till the digital era. From there on only major models are collected, but some more are shown.

The SB2 was a part of the S3-series, of which some 360 000 were made. Yours and mine differ with 98000, so not unlikely. Where did you pick it up? Good luck!

I recently picked up an SB and SB2. The SB serial no is close to yours 283235, but the SB2 is very different 500805. Do you know why they would differ so much?
