    Nippon Kōgaku Kōgyō is the original name of the company when founded in 1917, I think it stands for "Japan Optical Industries".

    Nikon, is also one of the major companies of the Mitsubishi Group.

    I used to have a 50/1.4 and a 35/2.8. Both were really good lenses. I'm sure they wouldn't measure up to today's standards but they gave photos a look I still like--not tack sharp but sharp enough and somewhat creamy in rendition of grey tones.
