I wish the K-3 would ship with a better strap. I got mine with O-ST132, which is .. well, plain bad. after a month, the nylon webbing part can put a persian in shame (all furry), there are loose threads everywhere.. maybe I'm just picky, which brings us to the question - what would be the best strap to be included with K-3?

I wish the K3 had lightroom tethering support. I know I can do something similar with an Eye-Fi card but "Professional" quality deserves professional support. They had it before with the k10 and k20, why they dropped it is still a mystery.

2) make "instant zoom to 100%" centered to the focus point, that was used.
Hey, that's a good one I like it too!

I wish the focus selection was always on by default, then go to change modes after button push. Automatically back to focus selection when done. I was fine with the OK button to change modes though on my K-7. I didn't think that needed fixing. Oh, would have been nice to be able to use the D-BG4 grip too, No reason to change except their bank account.

I wish the dual card-slot feature was implemented like this: you insert two cards, it starts with card 1. When that is full, you hear a few beeps but it continues with card 2. Then, when you have time, you replace card 1, but it still continues with card 2. When card 2 is full, you again hear a few beeps and it continues (or tries to) on card 1. Etc etc etc. If it can't continue, you hear it beeping longer. With almost 9fps this would be very useful when shooting in burst mode.

From what I read though, the K-3 can't do this.

I wish the K-3 had the old style viewfinder diopter slider. This new round one is too easy to accidentally turn. I'm always picking up my camera and it's in the wrong place.

A dial is more precise.

The diopter dial is one of those things that actually attract me to the K-3.
My eyes are getting old and I find myself wanting to shoot with glasses one second and without glasses the next. The dial would enable this switch.

The slider is very hard to set, intentionally as well as accidentally.

I wish I could set the RAW/Fx button to toggle Exposure Bracketing on or off, rather than the current On only.

I never used it, and got an eBay neoprene strap instead, for about 3$. It can hold the camera with 60-250 attached without problems.

I like the new one better, the older was hard to set.
