LightBug _ Tracking yes, as in AF hold and area expansion. But it uses safox IX+ not XI so fewer AF points, and no news yet on f/2.8 AF sensors either.

There also 77 points metering of K5, not 80K+ colors point of K3, meaning the tracking possibilities are by definition much more limited.

I think the 80k are exposure points rather than focus points, but yes - this is another spot where a K-3 feature did not port over.
FWIW I have blogged up my best shot at K-s1 details (as we know them) - and pointed out where details differ even within a Ricoh specs sheet (re. 12- or 14-bit raw).

I see the ricoh-imaging.jp site has updated the specs page for the K-s1. It now only says 12-bit raw, the reference to 14-bit raw images is gone. Bummer but no great surprise. It now explicitly includes AF adjustments similar to recent Pentaces, playback editing includes moiré reduction, that's new to me but was probably on the K-3. Also seen now are 'slant correction' along with different aspect-ratio crops in playback, and all the lens corrections and custom images are here as usual. Not sure about saving custom settings even now though - no C1/C2 setting on dial or USER option seen anywhere (can still save favorite cross-processing though). Like the K-3 it comes with the new Pentax DCU5.x software.
