Rebadged Pentax Lenses

I know Pentax manufactured and rebadged their glass for others, but for whom? Is their a database or link out in cyberspace for reference?

As "Schneider-Kreuznach," for Samsung.

Schneider-Kreuznach Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

Disregard the genuine Schneider-Kreuznach lenses in that list, like the PC-TS primes.

The K-mount and the SMC Pentax 28mm F2 are all that came out of the Pentax/Contax relationship. Contax went on to partner with Yashica and used the C/Y mount instead.

The K28/2 and the Zeiss Distagon 28/2 are optically the same.

It is possible that the Ricoh XR Rikenon 200/4 was made by Pentax.

But AFAIK the only lens Pentax ever made the wasn't M37/M42/K-mount was the FA 43mm Limited for Leica screw mount.

Steve Gandy suggests the barrel for that was made by a different company,
but I don't see any hard evidence:

Pentax 43/1.9 Limited

Rumor is that many of the first generation (metal-bodied) XR Rikenons were manufactured (at least in part) by Pentax. The XR Rikenon 28/3.5 is supposed to be the same as the Pentax-K 28/3.5 (some say Pentax-M). The XR Rikenon 200/4 is supposed to be the same as the Pentax-M 200/4.
