Adam, it sounds like you have the details already!
Of course he does - he has the camera already, along with a rock solid non-disclosure agreement to be enforced by Seal Team 6 if he so much as breathes a word

So what do you think is on the card slot side of the camera (besides 2 card slots) that we've been prevented from seeing?
A Credit Card swipe with a direct link to Ricoh's bank.

The finer details:


K-3

HIGHLIGHTS
Dual SD card slots
Dual SD card slots allow for greater memory card flexibility, for separation of JPG and RAW files, and for use with Eye-fi card and new FLU card technology.
Real Time Scene Analysis with 86,00 pixel sensor
The new Real Time Scene Analysis System features an 86,000 pixel RGB light-metering sensor and improved algorithms that further enhance accuracy of exposure, white balance and autofocusing.
Fastest continuous shooting at 8.3FPS
Never miss a single moment with an incredibly fast frame rate of 8.3 FPS, for extreme action capture and demanding high performance shooting.
24 effective mega-pixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor
Designed for the demanding photographer, the K-3 features 24 effective megapixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding high resolution imagery.
SAFOX11 Autofocus Module
The newly designed SAFOX11 autofocus module maximizes 27 AF sensors and a vast light sensitivity range of –3EV to +18EV.
Magnesium alloy body w stainless steel chassis
Durable magnesium alloy covers surround a rugged stainless steel chassis.
Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder for 100% FOV and .95 magnification
Low profile glass pentaprism viewfinder, with interchangeable focusing screens, achieves a 100% optical field of view for framing accuracy in a highly compact form factor.
PENTAX body-based Shake Reduction (SR)
The PENTAX-original SR stabilization system is built right into the body, and is compatible with any of the 27 million PENTAX lenses ever produced.
24 effective mega-pixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor
Designed for the demanding photographer, the K-3 features 24 effective megapixels in an APS-C sized CMOS sensor for outstanding high resolution imagery. By coupling this sensor with a newly developed PRIME III imaging engine with high-efficiency noise and image processing capacities and an anti-aliasing filter-less design, the K-3 delivers high-resolution, fine-gradation images.
Fastest continuous shooting at 8.3FPS
Never miss a single moment with an incredibly fast frame rate of 8.3 FPS, for extreme action capture and demanding high performance shooting. With a maximum 1/8000 second shutter speed, freeze even the fastest action without subject movement blur--rated for 200,000 cycles. The K-3 continuously records as many as 22 images in the RAW format or 60 images in the JPEG format* in a single sequence. This is made possible through the use of several innovative technologies, including a high-speed, high-accuracy control mechanism that regulates the shutter, mirror and diaphragm independently; a damper mechanism that effectively minimizes mirror shock; and a high-speed data transmission system incorporated in the PRIME III imaging engine. * JPEG Recorded Pixels:L, JPEG Quality:★★★
Selectable Anti-Aliasing Filter
Enjoy the world’s first selectable anti-aliasing filter, giving the user the ability to easily toggle anti-aliasing functionality on or off, for supreme resolution and zero limitations. This breakthrough technology eliminates the need to commit to either supreme resolution or superior moiré control, by providing both options in a single camera body. Newly developed for the K-3, the anti-aliasing simulator* applies microscopic vibrations to the image sensor unit at the subpixel level during image exposure, generating the same level of moiré-reduction effect as an optical anti-aliasing filter. * This function is most effective with a shutter speed of 1/1000 second or slower. This function is not available during HDR shooting.
SAFOX11 Autofocus Module
The newly designed SAFOX11 autofocus module maximizes 27 AF sensors and a vast light sensitivity range of –3EV to +18EV. The new focus module includes 25 cross sensors and three AF sensors dedicated to low light focusing.
Real Time Scene Analysis with 86,00 pixel sensor
The new Real Time Scene Analysis System features an 86,000 pixel RGB light-metering sensor and improved algorithms that further enhance accuracy of exposure, white balance and autofocusing.
Optional FLU, Eye-fi Wireless, and SDX Memory card compatibility
With installation of the optional, dedicated 16 GB FLU CARD for PENTAX in the K-3, the photographer can remotely change settings such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO, shift the AF focus point, release the camera shutter, check Liveview image, and browse and download images to mobile devices and PC. Eye-fi Wireless and standard SDX Memory cards also compatible.
Professional H.264 video
Enhance your video recording experience with full HD movie capture in the H.264 format (60p/50p/30p/24p), also including the ability to switch from still image to video recording with the flip of a dedicated switch. Equipped with a headphone terminal and stereo microphone terminal for external microphone connection. The user can also adjust the audio recording level manually and monitor sound levels during recording.
PENTAX body-based Shake Reduction (SR)
The PENTAX-original SR stabilization system is built right into the body, and is compatible with any of the 27 million PENTAX lenses ever produced.
Dual SD Card Slots
Dual SD card slots allow for greater memory card flexibility, for separation of JPG and RAW files, and for use with Eye-fi card and new FLU card technology.
Pentaprism Optical Viewfinder for 100% FOV and .95 magnification
Low profile glass pentaprism viewfinder, with interchangeable focusing screens, achieves a 100% optical field of view for framing accuracy in a highly compact form factor. Treated with a new coating, its glass prism improves reflectance resulting in a brighter viewfinder image. Also, its improved design assures 0.95-times viewfinder magnification for a broader image field and enhanced focus and composition confirmation.
Built-in Electronic Level
Built-in electronic level now features a tilt scale display in Liveview.
Fully Weather Sealed
With 92 special seals, the K-3 boasts a fully weather and cold proof design to resist water, fog, snow, sand, and dust, for top performance in extreme field conditions as well as in the studio.
Multi-pattern white balance
When shooting scenes that include multiple light sources, such as sunlight and shade or flash, light sources are recognized automatically and the image is separated into different areas. White balance is adjusted separately in each area according to the different light sources to achieve optimal color reproduction.
100-51200 ISO
High sensitivity 100-51200 ISO range with improved noise performance throughout, including ISO-specific noise reduction.
PENTAX PEF and Adobe DNG files
Native support for both PENTAX PEF and Adobe DNG 14 bit RAW files, including the ability to retrieve RAW data from JPG files if still present in buffer memory.
HDMI port
An HDMI port outputs high definition images, video and sound to HDTVs.
HDR Image Capture
Improved in-camera HDR image capture features more blending options and better pixel registration for easier operation without a tripod.
Customizable RAW/Fx button
Customizable RAW/Fx button allows for easy access to common shooting settings.
Magnesium alloy body w stainless steel chassis
Durable magnesium alloy covers surround a rugged stainless steel chassis.
Optional BG-5 Battery Grip
The BG-5, designed exclusively for the K-3, is the perfect match for this professional level DSLR, and optionally accepts six AA-sized batteries as well as the standard lithium-ion rechargeable battery. It features and extra set of shutter-release, AE-lock, AF, ISO, exposure-compensation and green buttons, as well as a preview lever and a dual electronic dials to facilitate vertical-position shooting. It also features the same dustproof, weather-resistant construction as the K-3 body.

I hate thread titles that give no indication of what they're about.

I don`t think the specs are complete, there are a lot of comma`s in the specs if you look closely.

K-5, K-5 II, K-5 IIs.

Their ISO 80 helped them trump the competition in DxOMark tests.

OK, thanks.. Obviously you must be right as you have a K-5. But I did check dpr before I posted the question and found that their published specs don't support this, they list 100 ISO as the lowest for the K5 range.

Probably has something to do with smaller pixels due to 24mp. The K-5 has 80-51200 in expanded mode.

Digital SLR Cameras - DSLR Cameras - RICOH Cameras

That shows the ISO 80-51,200 on the site itself. I do hope things are updated giving lower ISO.
