There is no dedicated ISO button. There are two unmarked buttons at the top left side of the body (in front of the mode dial), though.

To say honest Pentax've worked under body for last 2 year. And made good work. I'd like this camera will be launched in production.
I don't understand - 2 additional buttons close to RAW button. And FLASH button - for what?

Pentax shelved the project for more than two years and it seems that the project has just been defrozen.

As for the two unmarked buttons, they are reserved for something, of which the functions are not yet known.

RH, You don't know anymore about the 645D than anyone else at this point.
