    According to the press release from Pentax Japan, the lens on Optio550/450
    is SMC coated!

    However, from the photos of dpreview, there is no SMC marking on Optio550:

    The Japanese list price of Optio550 is 99,000yen and they expect a street
    price around 80,000yen, i.e. around US$670

    After looking at some of recenly released photos I think many of them may be of preproduction models rather than ready to buy goods.
