Yup, about 23.9%. Very roughly that. Could be 23.8 i suppose.
I feel that your sources are a bit off.

Can the screen be flipped around and set flat with the back to the outside?
Not aside in any case + verticaly, i guess the viewfinder is just too big to allow such a "selfie-orientation"...

I'm just wondering if it's going to cast unnecessary and unwanted reflections. Like into a model's eye. Or could you imagine the reflection of the word "PENTAX" across a model's forehead?

That would be a fatal side-effect, for sure.

This is becoming another pointless thread, I see. Let's close it down admin.

Easy to fix with a strip of black gaffer tape.

But it's only got to twelve pages! Good grief! Nobody's even mentioned a cheese sandwich yet (until now, that is)…

This thread is nowhere near the number of posts of the "Why I won't buy a K-3" thread, although much more of this and it could get like that, along the lines of "I won't buy a 645DZ because its logo's too shiny" or "I won't buy any camera with a Z on it".

And anyway, the countdown hasn't finished.

Anyway, it could be worse, like a shiny RICOH logo!

Becoming? This is seriously the most asinine thread I've ever seen on this site (and for a site having as many squirrel threads as this one, that is saying something).

Complaining about the letter Z not being "Pentax" enough? Speculations that it is mirrorless, after we already saw the body months ago? Accusations that what's shaping up to be the most capable integrated digital MF on the planet is not "special or interesting?" Apparently serious speculation that the price point will be $1800? And my favorite: "Ricoh is a bad father" because it upgraded a high-profile line where it has an established, proven technology and a position of market strength (not to mention cushy government contracts).

The jokes in this thread have been about the only good thing about it.
