    How did you establish that? The TOPCON (nee Tokyo Optical) Web site


    says it exited the camera business more than 20 years ago and makes no mention of Komamura Corporation as being a subsidiary.

    Komamura Corporation's company profile


    includes nothing to indicate it's owned/run by TOPCON or anyone other than Tosh Komamura.

    Inquiring (non-Japanese-speaking) mind wants to know.

    Sal, thanks for asking. Its a fair question and I'm glad you asked it. It made me examine why I thought that I was right.

    Here are a few links that support my assertion:

    http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Topcon_Horseman_Press

    http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Komamura

    http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Komamura

    There's no doubt that Komamura makes Horseman products or that Komamura sold LF Topcor lenses, see the Horseman catalog on cameraeccentric. That Komamura sold LF Topcor lenses proves nothing.

    The sources I cited are pretty shaky, so I think I was mistaken.

    Thanks again for making me reconsider my position,

    Dan
