|1.)||Asian/Oceanian distributor of Cosina AF lenses was a Singaporean company called Photo & Consumer Investments Pte Ltd., who sold these lenses under the brands of Cosina as well as of Vitacon. The Vitacon brand is owned by this company since 1983.
Cosina also produced AF lenses for Voigtländer (back in the 90s), although Voigtländer did not offer all of Cosina's lenses. Cosina became manufacturer for Voigtländer again in the last few years producing the higher end MF lenses of the SL / SL II series for example, that are also available for C/EF. The Zeiss ZE lenses are also manufactured by Cosina.
Former german regular distributor of Cosina was Foto-Walser. The Cosina AF line was discontinued around 2006. I'm not sure about what exactly is up with Vitacon at the moment. The PCI Ltd. still offers both Vitacon and Cosina lenses at the website.
