Pentax: No Longer Made In Japan

Hoya has ceased production of all Pentax brand cameras and lenses in Japan. The manufacturing operations will move to existing factories in the Philippines and Vietnam. This completes the off-shoring of all camera equipment, as DSLR, lenses and compact camera manufacturing was previously sent to the aforementioned countries and Taiwan.
