I've drawn up a bingo (lotto) card listing all the things that some forum members find wrong with the new offerings from Ricoh/Pentax, and so won't buy them. I've crossed off four already!

Top buttons behind shutter release will be +/- and ISO, with green button on the back, in keeping with their top-tier layout of those three (green is on top, ISO on the 4-way on the lower-tier bodies). Button above 4-way must be SD card toggle, although it has moved from its position on K-3. Maybe there's a button extreme lower right, I can't tell.

Well well well if isn't the FF Pentax. Whoever did the PS of the camera probably a beta tester!!! =) Maybe some of you guys here are already testing it. Mark D probably is one of them. Good Job Pentax/RICOH.

Happy for this happening but I have to admit I am a little disappointed... all the unveiling locomotion for a printed plastic shell .
I was hopping to see some pictures of a product more defined - or at least if they could of bothered to stick some fake screens and buttons to it... Guess I gotta wait a little longer...

Be aware some photo you see from Asahiflex are not the sample they show but was modified with Photoshop. The mock up is plain .

Would someone tell me where everyone is getting the 'tilty/articulate screen' idea from? Based on the model alone I see absolutely no indication that the screen will move just a millimetre.

Probably because the screen is not flushed with the body and its sticking out more, like it would when you have a tilt screen!?

Well they can't 3D print that now, can they? I think it's safe to assume it will have it (though I wouldn't care if it didn't (if I was in the market for FF)) #lispftw

No flash and extra button on left side!

So, confirmed, no flash at the moment (no flash popup button) and one more button than the k3 near the AF mode dial.
Any ideas?

This is sound reasoning, observe how the rear tilt screen protrudes from the MX-1:



Another reason that furthers my suspicion that it is a tilt screen is the amount of empty space immediately surrounding it. If the screen was stationary Pentax wouldn't waste that amount of space for no good reason.

In this image you can see there is a small seam around the side of the screen:

I just dug through the whole of internets to find that shirt. If anyone has any info where I can get this (shipped to Europe) I'd be very thankful.

Must. Have. That. T-Shirt.
I'm fairly unlikely to buy a FF, but I'd also buy that shirt!

The top reminds me a little bit on the AP 50th anniversary prototype...
