Image Compare feature for K5iis.

Do you think that there is any chance that Pentax returns the 'Image Compare' feature in a future update for the K5iis? How and where can I communicate my desire to Pentax? Do they accept requests from customers? Does any later model after K5, including the K1ii, have included this feature?

Do you think that there is any chance . . .

Since the last K-5iis firmware update was about five years ago, I would say there's little chance.

I think it's rare for individual input to affect corporate decision making, but you could try to contact Ricoh Imaging or express your wishes here:

If you're happy with your K-5, perhaps you could watch the Marketplace here and buy yourself a backup body?

Edit: And as far as I know, the K-5 was the last model to have Image Comparison.
