Top brands all Japanese?

Hello!

It appears that alot of top digital camera brands came from Japan, like Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Pentax (if not mistaken). Could you please name a few more quality brands that came from other regions of the world? Thanks!

Leica is made in Germany....correct me if im wrong.

Leica R9 is a model similar to traditional styled SLR's

They make fantastic quality optics!

You can also do a search on Lomo which while not being a 'top brand' is certainly a very popular one in its own niche. This is Russian made and if my information is correct has recently gone back into production to meet the rekindled demand for the product.

Samsung (Korean, although I've seen their dSLR called a "rebranded Pentax", so I'm not sure what's going on there.)

And yes, Pentax is Japanese, which is why I'm confused about the Samsung dSLR. Also, Sigma is Japanese, although I don't know if they even sell their DSLR outside of Japan.
