On July 25, 1917, three Japanese optical makers merged to form Nippon Kogaku K.K., the company today known as Nikon. Happy 90th birthday Nikon!
Nikon's corporate website in Japan
contains chronologies of significant
milestones, including the adoption of the Nikkor name for camera lenses in 1932 and the Nikon name for 35mm cameras in 1946.
