Until Ricoh lifts the 'cone of silence' protecting the FF, speculative silliness will persist.
Are you saying it will stop when they do? I thought we were speculating about the name of an unannounced potential / possible successor to the so far unreleased and unnamed first FF.

Sorry, but I think the silliness factor of that just overloaded my brain. No longer is it enough to speculate on the name of an unnamed (but at least announced) camera. Now we must speculate on the name of a camera that might be made sometime in the future if the first one is released and is successful.

Already made this joke a couple months ago in another FF thread...
Oh, sorry old chap. Did not intend to plagiarise.

Anyway, someone used one of mine above (K minus 5, k minus 3, etc), so I'm even

My expectation is that once the full frame camera is released, folks will move on to speculating about the possible release of an enthusiast full frame (ie cheaper full frame). I have seen no indication that Pentax plans to release such a camera and I would expect them to move their attention to the K3 II sequel after finishing with the K-1, but I guess we'll see.

Certainly the rumor section of the forum will continue to be the happening place here for the foreseeable future.

K-1 will offer a hard fight for the competition, but the successor will be called K.O.

Or Perhaps if the officials step in the "T.K.O."

The mystery front wheel is only a bad photoshop job when they decided to turn the off button to on in post processing, maybe because they didn't want to reveal any LED indicators or LCD display information.
Because we are not allowed to see what is going on here?

I just had a thought, it's a visual shutter release. wave your hand over it and it releases. Great for tripod shooting. Or a focus point selection pad or both!

Siemen1 speaks about the on/off button.

This rear wheal feels right like a "turn and push" buton.
I bet we will be able to use it also for AF position selection

That is actually a really good idea. Placed very nicely for that.

If it's just a rotary dial, I don't see how it may be used as an AF point or even AF zone selector.

Simple : you could define (using the separate AF selector) the size of AF area by group of sensors, then this wheel would just pass from one group to the next one , and you could lock/unlock the choosen group when pressing on the top of the wheel.

The fact that it has prominence on the right side of the camera must mean that it has a significant value to the camera's operation. Perhaps it taking some of the workload off of the rear buttons and adding other features as well.

I was thinking the black shiny center could be an 8 way joy stick.

it might theoretically work, but it would have to be on the white dot of the main selector dial as a sort of default position, and I suspect the white dot is simply an 'off' position so that you don't accidentally change settings
