iPhone control of K-S2 works from this far away . . .

About 35-40 feet. That's me tripping the shutter.

How is the image on the iPhone ? Is there a lag ? Can you use the iPhone as a remote monitor of what you are taking shots of ?

Yes, you see what the viewfinder sees to remotely monitor, and yes, there is a slight lag but I have had no chance to time it.

Thanks for the reports - all this new stuff is making it harder to resist buying the camera, it sounds really useful.

Have you tried to use the program on an iPad as well as the iPhone? The reason I asked is that I'm wondering how easy it is to see the focus with the program.

I have no iPad so can't testify to that. On-screen focus is by touching your device screen, and I am going to conjecture that it is as accurate as normal focusing. I've only done that one test at lunch hour today. I might put up further examples if I find anything interesting.
