Who has a camera with "Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company" on the bottom label?

Just interested in any new owners with a camera, lens or other accessory with "Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company" on the bottom label instead of "Hoya". It's a nice way to see if your item was built on or after October 1st, 2011.

Let's hope that Pentax is never built in Korea, because then it will be known as "Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company Korea", or P.R.I.C.K for short.

I suspect the more recent GPS units will most likely carry this label, things like camera bodies,lenses,batteries,etc tend to be stockpiled and their supplies are refreshed with the ebb and flow of supply and demand.
