No explanation what that button is?
According to Jeff Keller @dpreview

It's a dial, but since I haven't tried the camera, I'm not sure what it does.

interesting off-too: Sample shots are from Stockholm. Witch is the firs time some recognizable city in Pentax-Ricoh press material. Some weeks before K7 announcement i was in Riga, Latvia i seen one old photographer with some strange Pentax(at that time). I thought i was hallucinating K7, but now i know for sure it was K7. I Think there is some old gentlemen in Scandinavian/Baltic region who is trusted buy Pentax to take new cameras for spin...

What I don't get is:
if they designed this model with a focus on fashion, and they say the right knob is just a grip to balance the custom dial look-
why make it black? It stands out like a sore thumb on the light color versions.
Would have been better to make it match the dial color, no?
So maybe there is still an IR sensor there?

so just an update to exterior design in order to keep the system in headline... maybe they are keeping the real meat and potatoes for photokina.

Hold on, hold on ... There could be a brand new next generation sensor in there that gives us more dynamic range.

The maximum ISO setting is unchanged, which doesn't bode well, but isn't conclusive either, at least in respect of noise.

There is continuous focus in video mode, but that seems to be it, aside from software performance tweaks.
