Quote:Pentax and Tokina are not subsidiaries of a same company. Pentax is a brand currently used by Ricoh Imaging Company. Tokina is Tokina Co., Ltd. and has ties with Kenko.
That was badly phrased and inaccurate. Tokina is Kenko Tokina, since a few years ago.
As for Hoya owning Kenko Tokina... from what I see that's not true. However, Kenko Tokina's shareholders are people with key positions within Hoya. So they're clearly linked.
