K-01 Flash and MF questions

Has anyone done some testing with the flash system?

I was wondering what people think about pTTL performance. A lot of people complained about inconsistencies with the K-5, especially when using bounce flash. How does the K-01 perform?
It has been noted that a flash can be mounted without interfering with the on-board unit. Has anyone checked to see if it is feasible to use an auto setting - perhaps for bouncing - in combination with the on-board flash?

I am also curious about the experience with MF lenses. It appears that people like the focus peaking implementation, even if it isn't the most sophisticated design.
How does the camera do with macro focus?
And, is there nearly no shutter lag when shooting in MF?

Obviously, it is still early, but I haven't seen a whole lot posted about these performance questions.
