... One cannot go into their camera shop and order 3 HD lens coatings...
Well, of course not yet. The official announcement has just been made. It takes time to distribute new products to the shops. And, we may end up having to shop for this in a hardware store, along with other chemical products

They called the K-5 II their new flagship
They call it the new flagship model of the K-series. Clearly, the 645d is even more "flagship worthy".

- so what if the enigmatic FF camera is not "K-series" in order to distinguish it from the APS-C cameras?

The 9th announcement is the long waited K-3 -- 1st FF dSLR from Pentax ... Just wait and see...
If anyone has a clue about what's coming, it's got to be you. You've been spot on for all these years that I've known you. You've definitely got a rare SMC coated Pentax crystal ball stashed away.

Not predictions, information. ; )

No news from frank since his previous post. He is probably being held at Pentax's high security chamber now

Have him in a room with a Canon P+S while he watches others shoot with Pentax FF.

All the Adams and Franks who are suggesting an FF is around the corner better have 100% reliable sources, or they will have caused big disappointment.

"Top model", "flagship", "superior model", etc do not need to imply FF.

Everything I have heard points to the K-3 to be a 24MP APS-C camera to become available around March 2013.

Just like last year when the K3 FF Pentax was announced on the 1st of April? Because of last years "incident" credibility of any FF rumor here on PF is lower then ever.
