So they never did update the HDMI on the 675ES to 18Gbps, right?

Correct, not full 18Gbps.

Good news for A-lens users, Oppo 203 can do vertical stretch on 4K content, as long as the disc does not prohibit it. This is really good news for Sony owners. Previously, you would have had to purchase a Lumagen video processor.

They can prohibit such things by request on the disc?

Yes they can. Oppo owners that used the vertical stretch every now and then would run across a BD (1080P) that would not allow vertical stretch. I don't know that it is so much a matter of restricting it on purpose or just a matter of not not quite implementing everything correctly on the disc. The percentage of A-lens owners is so small compared to the rest of the BD buying public, that if a mistake was made, they certainly are not going to go back and correct it.

But unlike the 666ES which was limited to 4K/60 4:2:0 8bit, the new 675ES, can handle 4K/60 4:2:0 10bit HDR.

So that makes the 675ES capable of HDR on 4k/60 sources like the Roku Ultra, and many of the new 4K HDR gaming consoles.
