Looks to me like this new full frame definitely shoots both stills and video.

seems to be a typical ISO button on top deck in the usual place. That dial next to it is certainly a mystery!

K-5 or K-3 on steroids, it looks good. I hope you FF lovers will be happy with this.

I am surprised by the relative LARGE size of the mirror hump. Clearly that much excess space is not needed just for the GPS. Me thinks that maybe there's something new and unexpected under the hood of this one.

I wondered the same thing, but I don't know that the tilting LCD completely explains that...

It reminds me of the 645D I handled years ago, at a show. They had the shutter working, so you could hold it up to your eye and trigger the shutter, but they didn't have the processing software refined enough to actually put an image on your memory card. Makes me wonder if this is the same deal. All the components in place but still working out the software, and image processing. It certainly looks like it could be.

They let me hold the 645D even though it was still not functional. See if someone will take it out of the case for you. It never hurts to ask.

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!
Of course it will, but the green button is useful with any glass. (I hope they have improved support actually, but I don't really expect it.)

I think the extra dial is to switch between "terrible APSC mode, meh Canon FF mode with extra banding, and super Nikon/Sony FF instant Nat geo quality"

True, I never even realized that, until my K-5IIs got stuck in "M" mode, then I found out that the green button will meter and set the correct settings.
