OK, cool didn't realize you could hit info twice when not in green mode for a quick menu. That will be helpful later.

Took a lot of fooling around to get used to P mode, I think I sorta have it worked out now, the book doesn't seem to explain it at all, (or I was in the wrong section of it yet again). That is to say stuff like hitting a combo of ISO button and green button to switch ISO, aperture and shutter speed between manual and auto. I had ISO stuck on manual for awhile before fiddling with buttons worked it out. I am good at learning without instructions.
Menu circus.

Also updated firmware from 1.03 to 1.15 just because.
I really like this camera.

The title pretty much sums it up.

I recently moved from a K10 to the K5IIs. The K10 is a very good camera, but the K5IIs is phenomenal.

Just do it.
