I'm sure the final body will be more refined and I would expect the screen to shrink a little bit. Its good to see Pentax finally taking the plunge and bringing their class leading build quality and ergonomics to a FF body. Now everyone has 8 months to save money.

Kimio Tanaka (product development) mentions it in an interview:
He says
- articulate screen
- no flash
- screw drive
- fixed focal lenses will come (of course)
- SR resolution enhancement will be 1,5 - 2x
data size goes up to 4x
only for non moving motives
How many megapixels?
This is an interesting alternative to the unaffordable 645z (and I own 4 645 lenses...).

with use of the appropriate wireless control setting on an attached AF540 or AF 360 it will be perfectly possible to control additional flashes.
Yes, I understand that. The reason I asked my original question is that some recent Canon cameras have built-in master capability, which allows the camera to control outboard flashes without having a flash on the camera itself. It is kind of a neat feature. There seem to be some who will miss a built-in flash because they use it primarily to control other flashes and make minimal use of its limited output.

Don't know.
It seems even Pentax is not certain yet.
Until quite recently it was the 24 MP sensor.
But it seems (posts on dpreview) that they dropped that.
Perhaps 36 MP?

Doesn't appear so, but I'd be absolutely confounded if WiFi won't be accessible from the menu. FWIW, on the first menu (camera 1) of the K-3, there is space for 1 more option.

Easy enough to have WiFi there to be toggled on or off in a couple of steps rather than dedicate precious space and buttons IMO.

It does certainly seem to be drawing attention. In that picture alone, there are four cameras pointing at it!

Can we play "where is the moviebutton" and does the FF have a moviemode at all?" now?

It's not as gigantic as it looks - that's an Olympus behind it.

I think it is almost the same size as the K-3, just a little taller.
