The Nikon corporation was created in 1917 when three lens manufacturers merged to create Nippon Kogaku K.K. They immediately began focusing on glass research, producing microscopes, binoculars and lenses. In 1932, Nippon adopted the Nikkor name for their lenses, a name which still stands today. The Nikon name surfaced in 1946, being issued exclusively to their small size cameras.

Nippon continued to research, develop and manufacture in many areas including sunglasses, opthalmic frames, plastic lenses, and scientific instruments. But by 1980 it was clear that Nippon was claiming a good portion of the camera market. The legendary Nikon F3 SLR was released in 1980, and their first auto-focus camera in 1983.

Nippon changed their corporate name to Nikon in 1988. Since then Nikon has branched in many directions, but has kept focus on their founding product - lenses, while continuing to develop their stronghold on the amateur and professional camera markets.
