Video ISO control

Ive searched around and haven't been able to find anything about why there is no ISO control in video mode for the K-5. although i understand pentax is mostly ignoring the current video craze on DSLRs, the sensor K-5 is just too good to be over looked. lately i have been shooting a lot of b-roll with a takumars and the footage has been coming out impeccably and often better then the cannons on set. however with out proper ISO control it is really keeping me from shooting more often with it (and QC im about to be on my third body). im just wondering am i the only one who is looking this basic feature?

It is a common complaint, doubt we'll even see firmware at this point....most likely it will appear in the new models come next photokina (if anyone at PRIC is actually listening it'll show up on a FF DSLR )

ok most of this is K-5 with T2i and XH-A1 thrown about.

this shoot is what made me really like my k-5 footage because the white balance was way off on about 3 hours worth of shooting, but there was enough colour information to get back to something usable. the cannon footage that i have edited hasn't ever given me that much room.
