Time travel function. Takes you back 5 minutes for each press to get a missed shot. Press and hold to pause your subject for motion-free shots. Press, hold and turn e-dial to activate the improbability drive.

I see 3 buttons and the PC sync cap so I still think it will be a flash, which would mean that the uppermost button is for flash, then Raw/FX and then AF mode. As this is considered an enthusiast FF camera, not a pro, it will have an onboard flash.
On the mock up most of the joints seem well defined. I don't see any on the viewfinder housing to indicate there is a built in flash. I know some folks use it, even if just as a master to trigger off camera flash, but I have never used the built in flash on my DSLRs. I wouldn't miss it at all.

The extra button is for the on board flash, of course. HOWEVER, it will not pop up. Instead,
the flash will erupt from behind fresnel glass PENTAX letters. Another Pentax first!

Hehehehe....yeah when the FF is in production, it will be printed "Optimus Prime" on that button and some will say "Prime ? But what if I use it on a zoom lens ?".

When pressed, that button will engage awesomeness and unicorns will pop all around you... and rainbows will come from the top of the camera where that silly pop-up flash should of been. Rainbow strobism... (rainbowmism!?)!

EMP pulse to make sure that you are the only one getting the shot. Your press photograph value just rose by 1000x!
