Composition adjustment? I missed that one. A useful feature for me would be a flashing warning message that says "DANGER! YOU ARE ABOUT TO TAKE ANOTHER CRAPPY PICTURE".
According to the manual, it adjusts the sensor very slightly to level a shot if it just needs a very minor adjustment which is much easier than resetting your tripod. It might be a handy feature now that I know it's there.

Does the sensor tilt as well? I think you could have fun shifting the sensor around to get a feel for what a shift lens might do for the image. Mount a full frame lens on the K-5, the coverage circle should be more than adequate for the maximum shift possible.
That would be awesome ;-)

heh, that feauture would not allow to take any marketing pictures of that ugly K-01 , just kidding......back to sensor shift, not a feature you would need in common use, but in some situations it can be very handy. For tripod landcsape or architecture photography it has some application.
