#6 - Pentax needs the recognition for their contributions to photography, not enough people know about them

I would buy #2 for formal occasions, #4 for walk-around bragging rights and #6 for when I attend my Sony, Nikon and Canon dominated photo club events. #:-;

All-in-all, nicely done!

Regards to each entrant for your creativity!

In the late 1950s, Asahi Optical Company introduced this (Asahi Pentax) logo:

I voted for #6 and #7 (my design).

What a.t. wrote (thanks a.t.!). Also see my submission post (2022 Pentax Forums T-shirt Contest - Page 2 - PentaxForums.com).

It's an eye of cyclops (in Japanese, SRL=一眼レフ i.e. "single eye reflex" or "mono eye reflex"), thus it doesn't have the distinction of inner and outer eye corner though earlier version was asymmetric. "Pentax" is in "P" of "AP", or Asahi Pentax.
Regarding the crown, my guess is that the crown represents the ambition of the company at the time, that they'll become the king of the SLR world. They released Asahi Pentax (AP, the camera, not the brand) in 1957 and Pentax K in 1958, the "K" is said to stand for the King. The cyclops "AP" trademark was submitted for registration in 1959.
Thanks for the answer, I didn't know this logo, historical mention so ! I thought you invented it, I apologise

Many thanks.
For sure this design makes pretty much sense on an historic base + is also visual and clearly understandable.
A blockbuster imho

The designs are now finalized and available to order, though the official announcement won't go live for a few more days. Below are some links for those who want to snag some shirts early:


Design 2:
https://teespring.com/pentax-forums-2022-design-1a? (standard/long sleeve/womens' tees)
https://teespring.com/pentax-forums-2022-design-1ext? (V-neck, hoodie, sweatshirt)

Design 4:
https://teespring.com/pentax-forums-2022-design-2f?cid=2122 (standard/long sleeve/womens' tees)
https://teespring.com/pentax-forums-2022-design-2fh2? (V-neck, hoodie, sweatshirt)

We weren't able to go with Design 7 due to trademark issues, and similarly had to update Design 4, but I love the way the final version turned out!
