HD was a trademark for Hoya filters (still is) well before it was used by Pentax.
So still no Ricoh influence, we are still running on Hoya......

Ah, I read that post as "lens" singular and thought the poster was talking about something new or maybe the 18-80ish f/2.8 or something. Did not think of the "HD limiteds". I fear using HD on these was a mistake as too many will assume the HD is related to video rather than the coating. I'm surprised they used it actually as I thought 'HD' was trademarked for a video format.
No, it's not assuming... is anti-Pentax propaganda; don't listen to that.
A more natural connection would be with the HD/non-HD TVs, and that's all about resolution. I think you're thinking too technical, going straight to the 1080p video format; but would the average consumer do the same?

I doubt there's any connection between the technologies, though it might be possible Hoya wanted to "uniformize" things and profit from Pentax' coating experience/research.
After all, Pentax never stopped developing new coatings, and have a very good reputation in this field. Hoya... just do a comparative patent search

I think there is no anti-Pentax propaganda.
If anything, there may be anti-old-Pentax-ways feeling, or rightful asking well-Ricoh-shouldnt-you-hurry-up-and-look-outside-Japan-too.
No one hates Pentax, because Pentax is very much like Steve Wozniak of the PC industry, a guy who invented all the good things we take today for granted. A legend; maybe out of shape, but a legend.
Even Nikon and Canon users love Pentax, and what Pentax may stand for.

You think there isn't, I see it in action
Unfortunately, if you want to see Pentax-hate you don't even have to go to a certain cereal-related blog... you don't even have to leave this forum, which was supposed to be a place for Pentaxians

$1300 for the body. If that is correct its cheaper than the K5ii when it was released. That's aggressive pricing from the start. A good move from Ricoh.

The trolls certainly seem to have been getting worse lately.

I've always bought the grip with the body K10d and k7 but I think I might pass on the grip this time. Yes I'm buying this camera even if it doesn't out perform the K5ii because it's time for my k7 to retire. I don't get the anti Ricoh bias a few people have, Ricoh has made some really great cameras and seem to just plug along at their own pace making a camera better and better.
