I'd also spend the time using AF correction on all your lenses. You want to make sure that you are getting the absolute best performance from each lens on this body, so use what was given to you.

Yes this is one of the first things I did.

Forgive my ignorance, but what does this do?

Most of the user defined settings don't seem to apply if you shoot raw, is that correct?

It allows the use of the aperture ring on A series and manual lenses.

Could you point me to a tutorial on how to do this? I mean, I assume you have to check your lenses somehow like a front/back focusing test?

I use a tape measure in good light with the lens wide open and use the AF to focus on particular measurement. I take a picture. you can soon see if the focussing is front or back. I adjust the AF setting and take another pic. if it still needs some adjustment then I repeat the process

Why do you have NR on at these low ISOs? I don't have my K-5 yet, but wouldn't think it would be needed.
I take a lot of sunrise shots and use ISO 100 and can get up to 30second exposure.So it would create a bit of noise at that shutter speed.

So has anything changed for anyone with version 1.03? Have you altered your setup with the new firmware?

First thing I did was to go to the Custom Menu and turn on the "Squirrel Radar". Then I set no noise reduction and Tav to use ISO up to 12,800.
Now I just step out on the deck, let the K5 home in on a Handsome Squirrel and push the shutter button! I think there is a setting where I won't have to even push the button......anyone found it yet?
Best Regards!

ISO 2500 Gotta love it!
