I have no idea where "prweb" got that "almost equal" information from. As far as I can thell, they are the only ones that describe it as such and have shown absolutely no data to justify such a claim.

You can read the original Pentax article at Pentax Imagining.

Thank you

I guess you're right then!

Strange wording for a press release, I can see why everybody else (online retailers, etc) chose not to include that sentence. I also wonder then why they wouldn't put their best coating on a $7000 / GBP 6000 lens...
