  • I wish the sync speed were 1/250 like Nikon/Canon.
  • I wish it would label groups of bracketed shots with a tag so you could pair them up again later.
  • I wish I could "Name" my user modes.
May I suggest that you sound a bit 'old school'...?

With a little practice and skillful pp, it's easy to get acceptable 1/250 shots at iso25,600 without flash... so 'meh' to N/C... let them fuss with flash stuff... it's rare that you actually need it in the every day world...

Why tag bracketed shots when the subject/setting is obviously the same for each shot in a set? If you can't see the differences between image sets... What's the point of bracketing? Just take your shot and move on...

You can create custom 'Names' for your User Modes. User modes are magic... they can turn the K-5 into five cameras in one body...

RTFM... practice... perfect practice... Give yourself a year with the K-5 before you judge it... You'll soon discover that the K-5 is a very different critter...

Cheers and enjoy the season...

One "User" setting I don't see, but would be usefull in a studio or partnership, would be photographer/copyright. It seems to be global right now. Perhaps in a future firmware update?
