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.
Sorry Bro, I was joking.

So many threads about the mystery 9th announcement, I just couldn't help but step in for the party

This round I have to disappoint you, sorry ...

I had a very legit source which told me that there will be a FF called Z1sD that will be announced in few days. :-(

The rumour was nine announcements, not nine products. Given the amount of acclaim that has been given to SMC coatings over the years, HD could actually be a pretty big deal.
Not saying that there should be nine announcements ...

But Pentax HD coating is nothing but Nano Crystal Coating like Nikon uses it in the 24-70/2.8G or 70-200/2.8G-II and other lenses since a couple years. Such Nikon lenses carry an "N" designation, Canon lenses an "SWC" designation (Subwavelength Structure Coating). Canikon seem to have introduced this some 3-5 years ago. I would have thought that it is part of newer Pentax lenses SMC coating as it is the current state of the art.

BTW, many lenses with nano coating use it on one or a few surfaces only. Is anything known for Pentax' HD coating?

They call it the new flagship model of the K-series.
Maybe it's a "flagship" in the sense of "small, nimble ship that carries the flag." Right behind it is the fearsome and heavily armed battleship.

Yeah, I got nuthin'.

Cute.

All the acclaim that Fuji gets these days for camera styling aside, the 645zi is one of the ugliest cameras I have ever seen.

Not much other than it is similar to Aero Bright but not as good. Of course little is publicly known about Aero Bright other than it is nano tech.

If I wanted to go Sony I'd go camcorder any time of day, that is where they are strong in, Their dslr's tend to become camcorders in a dslr housing but the shape of camcorders has eveolved with handling as a camcorder in mind . Sony dslr's , well they do take pics but ergonomically they are flawed camcorders...
