I based this on the "AP" trademark originally granted to Asahi Kogaku in 1961 ("AP" represents Asahi Pentax) and eventually transferred to Ricoh. In Japanese language, Single Lens Reflex is called 一眼レフ = "mono eye reflex", thus Cyclops' eye.
https://www.j-platpat.inpit.go.jp/c1800/TR/JP-1959-034775/A288224C73446ADEF5...B29525BA/40/en

TKO (the designer of J-limited series among other things) says that there are two variants for this. Earlier version had inner as well as outer corner of the eye, but later they thought that an eye of a mono-eyed creature cannot have "inner" and "outer" corner, so they changed the design.
?????? (PENTAX by RICOH IMAGING) - [TKO??] ?????TKO???

Note to Adam: I'd like to be careful as the AP trademark is still active and I don't intend to infringe on anything. If this wins (hey, I can dream big ), I'll ask Ricoh Imaging Japan if this is acceptable.

FYI, my hope is that the PF logo works as Cyclops' lips. Pointy part of the logo below P means that he's sticking the tip of his tongue out to the right.

Just another idea

Edit... Thanks to @bobphoenix for helping me identify a couple of needed corrections, also updated the font to a Pentax's logo similar font (Fago Ex) so now I'm not using Pentax logo, and changed the camera image as the first one I used is copyrighted, so to avoid any issues, I created one on my own camera image.
Great list!

Could you add "(World's first instant return mirror SLR)" to 1954 Asahiflex II?

Also,
2011 O-GPS1 and Astrotracer function (Camera follows stars' motion in the sky using sensor shift)
or some such?
