Regarding 9th pentax announcement..

So far we have seen 8 pentax-ricoh announcements.. but the rumor was that there will be 9..
Could it be that pentax-ricoh has left something up in its sleeve? could it be the... K3? could it be announced during the photokina? or at least shown the prototype? these are only questions.. but.. i'm a just a dreamer, or these questions hold some truth in them..

The dream is still alive, but you may have to re-post the question next year or in two years time...

There's nothing left in the sleeve. The ninth announcement was the HD coating.

oh well sad.. thanks for clarification guys..
Anyways, I think they'll grab some attention with these current products in the photokina.. however will that be enough in our hurdling everchanging photo industry..

The actual rumour was "9 announcements for beginning of this week".

You've got this far. By applying simple logic, this does not mean there's nothing left in the pipeline .

Funny,

We posted almost exactly the same thought at the exact same moment.

Whilst there were 9 new 'products' announced (including the HD coating) I am not aware they all had numeric identities. How do you know that the HD coating wasn't #1?

Also, I have hardly seen any reference to the new 'series' of HD lenses. I wonder if Pentax intends to release a FF line of HD lenses of if it plans to rationalize the current DA line into a new HD line.

hehehe but he is not a product!!

And neither is a lens coating.. that is a technology.. not a product. One cannot go into their camera shop and order 3 HD lens coatings. Unless you spin this marketing style and claim one is buying the lens coating and getting a camera lens thrown in the deal for free.

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.

Maybe the 9th product was a massive world-wide Pentaxian dummy spit at the lack of major product releases.

BTW: The "non-product" HD coating may well turn out to be the most important announcement of the lot.
