Looks like many lens are getting HD treatment, and some are getting WR.

I wonder if compared to SMC, HD coating is both better and cheaper to produce!?

HD sounds consumer friendly nomenclature so it may not be the best of their coatings.

Yes they do have a better one, they use on a few DA* and 645 lens. I forget the name. I wish the 560 HD were a little more consumer friendly!

But here is a test that shows how a coating can influence a lens

it there wasn't Sigma 8-16, I might have fallen for this lens on Pentax mount..

Yes the Sigma 8-16 is a nice lens!

Kind Regards,
