Iso

Forgive my ignorance but I can't seem to go below iso 100 I thought I have seen 80?

Not sure about the K-7, but to get to ISO 80 on the K-5 you have to turn on the expanded ISO range in the first page of the custom menu.

You can even go lower then ISO80 but you need the right camera or film to do that.

The K-5 can do ISO 80-51200 but the K-7 can only do ISO 100-6400.

My ME Super has ISO ratings down to something ridiculous like ISO 12. I think that's more for exposure compensation use, but still...

I believe there are ISO12 films though.

Setting ISO 80 is indeed very similar for the K-5: turn on expanded sensitivity in the first page of the custom menu.
