Procedure to test all features of new K-5

Is there a posted list or procedure set for new owner of K-5 to test all important features of camer body? Need to verify all functions early while under warranty umbrella. Please advise.

I do not know of any set testing but it would be a good idea to just go through all the major functions anyways to get to know just how the work and what conditions way are suited for. It lets you know how well you can get to these features. Just play around with it and have fun learning the features the K-5 has to offer.

Turn dials, click shutter, get expected amazing results. Sounds like a good k5 test to me too!

I just got my new K-5. The Swedish manual has 374 pages. The camera has so many features it would take a lifetime to go through them all. I check the ones that interest me and don't let the rest steal my time.
Nevertheless I do intend to read through the whole manual. Three bed-time sessions have taken me to page 164...

Glad to know that I am not the only one who thinks a camera manual makes for great bed time reading!
