They are owned by the same parent compay and Hoya make the glass for both.just wondering, what's the basis for kenko and hoya being the same?
are they coming out of the same factory or did one of the companies buy the other or something?
To my knowledge.. pentax currently owns hoya right?
They don't perform the same. See here... Filter Tests
Note that Pentax does not own Hoya, Hoya owns Pentax. Technically, Hoya and Pentax merged but Hoya (the much larger company) then sold off the unprofitable parts of Pentax. The Pentax's camera division was to be sold to Samsung but I don't think that ever happened.
