The right tall dial seems to be dual, like the left dial on all recent Pentax DSLRs.

I honestly don't remember much about what the various dials were for. It was just a quick stop at the booth and a quick look. I also thought the back screen looked "odd" the way it articulated. I suspect the production model won't be like that. It seemed almost like a scissor jack type thing on the back. Apparently it wasn't a working model, just a mock up. They has something over the "ID" of it. I tried to see what it said, but couldn't see. I'll try to see if I can get any better info out of them tomorrow and sneak some better shots of it for you guys.

It's strange, but the dial to the far right doesn't seem to have any markings, even Adorama's "sharp" photos don't really show anything.

Too bad adorama's add copy is wrong about the flash sync speed of the 645z (I think?)

Man that looks like a k3!

Maybe more like K3II on steroids. There is no pop-up flash and a separate GPS slide switch on the right top side.

The Adorama shots are definitely better then mine. Same angles. They had better luck not getting those crappy reflections. They must have had a CPL on the camera. Either way, we've seen it now. Gives us a bit more hope.

They used the FUJIFILM X-Pro1, but no clues as to whether or not they used a CPL.

I saw the "green button" on the backside where it is located on the K3 and K3II. That means the full frame will likely support the really old manual focus Pentax glass!

I should hope so! If Ricoh somehow decided to discontinue the long tradition of supporting all their old lenses with the long-awaited FF, they would be sunk.

Lots of buttons and dials, and definitely look smaller than the new behemoth Leica SL.
