It sure looks ugly from this side, and it makes me think that the "bulge" contains some very special mechanics as opposed to an external connection. A turbo module for the mirror assembly?

Yep, the AF button now only has AF and MF on it, and a new button "AF MODE" above it. So they've surely done something special with the AF

Yes ugly is a word I'd use although it does appear to be a WA shot thus enhancing the bulbous look. They must be hiding something interesting on the back because we've seen no shots of that as yet.

That ugly bulge looks like an after thought. Hope it's just a prototype

MF / AF Only?

Thats lame, i realy do like the fast and good working idea with the lever on my K5, but AF/MF only seems a bit lame for some flagship DSLR...

The prism housing surely has grown a lot bigger.

Then it might just be true that we will have a focusing system that will match the competition.

Could be ergonomics as well. I do sometimes hold my camera on the left side, esp with a pancake lens, and this bulbl may enhance the grip holding the camera that way?

Also an effect of the WA as mentioned by bossa I would say.
[EDIT]Or perhaps not, judging from the comparison posted by Asahiflex...[/EDIT]
