Tripod settings for K-30, K-50?

I've read the suggested settings for the K-30 and K-50 in the reviews but wondered if anyone has any other suggestions for settings that should be used when shooting landscapes with a tripod and a wired or wireless release?
I presume you would turn Image stabilization off. Anything else?

Using the 2 second timer will automatically turn off the shake reduction. It will also automatically flip the mirror up before opening the shutter, thus eliminating the possibility of camera shake from the sonic-boom mirror slap of the K30/50.

Yup, the 2-second timer is the easiest thing to do, as it takes care of everything for you.
