I wish they would copy the custom function No36 for AF "SEL" mode from the K7 - on the K5IIs the ok button requires a one second press to switch to AF select or to change picture controls... it is a rather irksome when you try to change the AF point and you end up putting the camera into Mirror lock up mode..

When I updated my K5IIs I didn't see any changes - least no changes that affected my use of the camera. Stability improvements are always welcome though.
