In fact, the innovators of the 5-Axis IBIS (Olympus) show clearly that Pitch and Yaw (tilting & turning) is part of the 5-axis system, so unless Pentax have some other way to explain the '5' axis, then their sensor ass'y does tilt as shown in their diagrams etc.
You have to distinguish between what kinds of movement are addressed by the stabilisation systems and what kinds of sensor movements are performed to counteract the camera movements.

Both Pentax and Olympus address three rotational axes and two axes of translational movement. Both systems only shift the sensor in a 2D plane for four of these movements and rotate (but not tilt) the sensor for one rotational axis (camera roll).

The Olympus video illustrating the mechanics of sensor stabilisation is as misleading as the Pentax promotional video. All kinds of camera movement shown are addressed, but never by tilting the sensor.

Not much point in continuing this I feel.

Actually hoping for links to real reviews and coverage as the launch progresses. Been quiet for a while but hopefully in the next few weeks we will see an uptick in media attention as the production version camera gets into reviewer hands.

Here is a video review of the K-1 that was made recently, by digiDIRECT.com.au:

Apparently DPReview hasn't even received a review sample yet.

I guess was the official launch party for the K-1 in Japan. Definitely n fun and/or interesting watch (but long), especially if you understand Japanese!

Not sure if already reported elsewhere but Imaging Resource has new review details (and images) now (done with production V1.0 camera):
Pentax K-1 First Shots: Finally, the first full-frame DSLR from Pentax goes head-to-head with its rivals

In short it looks like it compares quite favourably.

The K1 made it to No. 8 on the BCN list already

The article is on the CIPA figures for March 2016, the BCN list below the tables indicates the K-1 went from 151st to 8th position.

DigitalRev Hands-on First Impressions
That was painful to watch.

Really, that is their appraisal of a fantastic camera?

They nitpick about the option dial selection not being shown in the viewfinder and claim "LED lighting on the camera except where you really need it". Probably the lighting option for the top LCD panel was turned OFF and these clowns are either incapable of figuring that out or have a problem with Pentax. One would expect better from reviewers, but it seems the DigitalRev jokers got deeply hurt when they were asked whether they are from Sony upon entering the Pentax K-1 demonstration area. There is an article on the web which is as ridiculous as the video in not giving the K-1 proper credit that references this incident. I won't link to it because such time-wasting nonsense does not deserve any visitors.

N.B. DigitalRev do not do reviews. They do entertaining pieces -- when Kai is involved that is, this attempt by Lok and Ian was just a sad attempt to recreate Kai's style -- that aim at informing potential customers of their shop about the availability of a product.

In terms of evaluating products, they are a complete fail. They compare lenses, not adjusting for FF on one of them and then stating the other is sharper. Or they make an AF comparison between two cameras, not only using hand-holding, but also two different photographers and two differently moving subjects in the comparison.

I started to enjoy the DigitalRev buffoonery once I accepted that it has nothing to do with reviewing gear.

I only made it about 5 minutes into it and closed it.

The top LCD lighting was on.
They don't offer an explanation for "lighting on the camera except where you really need it". A pointless statement without telling everybody where they really need it.
