It does appear on the Turkish spec sheet linked above. I don't think it incorporates the Astrotracer - it's just a composite video mode that makes cool looking star trails.

As seen previously on the K-S2:

PENTAX K-S2 Interval Movie Sample "Star Stream" - YouTube
A special mode for doing that type of video? If that is all it does, then Itís a pretty ridiculous function.

The K-1 is going to be a SOLID camera:
No wonder the teaser page was drawing comparison to the LX! Forget about scruffing this one in the Afghan dust and then dousing in the showers; Heie just about ought to be able to take it to the battlefield with him as a melee weapon. Put a thoriated Takumar lens on it and call it combat-ready...

An image of the metal shell fitted with the steel substructure of the camera has surfaced. The K-1 is going to be a SOLID camera:
Where you expecting anything else? You can find pretty much the same pictures for K3, K5 and K7 as well.
Nice pictures though.

I gave a would be mugger a clout once with a K20D and Takumar 85/1.9, he didn't get up that quickly.

Put the 35mm>67 lens adapter on a K-1 with the Pentax M*67 800mm f/6.7 ED [IF] it would be quite a formidable weapon.

I'll get back to you on that

On closer inspection it probably is metal. Just de pentaprism housing plastic. Look at the sides of the lcd screen lay in:

I still haven't seen anything about face detection working in optical viewfinder AF. Only face detection in LiveView ( ie just like the K-3 and earlier Pentaxes). Has anyone seen any mention of PDAF face detection in the K-1?

That's a D800 feature I've been impatiently looking forward to seeing in the K-1.

Still don't know what the additional unspecified dial on the top of the camera is for.

To control what is selected on the function dial next to it.
