Does it actuallly say Cosmicar anywhere on teh lens? From what I've read, it seems that many but possibly not all of the CPC (Combined Products Corporation ) Phase 2 lenses were manufactured by Asahi Pentax, whereas Cosmicar was/is a wholly-owned subsidiary o Asahi/Pentax, mostly concerned with making TV/Video lenses, and which may have done the actual manufacturing on the CPC 35mm lenses in factories in Taiwan and Korea.

Confusing, to be sure, but it's not nearly so bad as teasing out the relationships between the manufacturers of Vivitar/Focal/Sears/etc. lenses!

Interesting - that's the first time I've seen that on a CPC lens.
