It looks like it has a flip out screen. It is a beautiful camera. It seems t be a improved Nikon D810. I am moving on personally, when ever I use my K5II, I find myself missing the finder features of my A7II. Previewing my shots in the finder is wonderful. The LCD is always hard to see in bright sunlight.

Not sure how well the tiny top-plate LCD would work out. I rely on the one on my K-3 II all the time, and almost never need to use the back screen to check settings while shooting. The one on the K-1 looks like something of the sort used on the Nikon Df.

what do you need to know from shot to shot that isn't in the viewfinder?

There is a top screen, just dark in this image. It is to the left of the unspecified black dial

There's speculation that the 'third-wheel' controls the information visible in the top LCD. Info is context-grouped.

Press the domed button to change the view - scroll the wheel to change the setting.

I use the VF for framing and focussing and may check shutterspeed. Top screen is a lot more comfortable when changing settings.

Has anyone thought of asking (Ricoh - Pentax) whether this camera will have a "de-crippled" mount ?
I thought this was a pretty hot debate in the past ... ?
Perhaps not a concern to anyone anymore ?

Exactly. I use the top screen every time too -- Through adjusting the settings before I even look through the VF, usually as I'm moving towards a scene.

I'm very interested in how the top panel functions on this body. A crucial element for me.

OK, put the other way, what's the problem with using the rear screen?

I'm curious as why the top plate isn't covered in the images.
