K-S2 Firmware 1.02

This firmware seems to have corrected most of my gripes. Over exposure on Auto. Though it might also be the stock 18-50 lens. Using a 50mm prime, I've always obtained perfectly exposed photos, unless it was user error - no hood, or too close.

I still see a tendency to blow highlights and give texture in dark shadows, I've set my K-S2 to - 1/3 EV and this works nice. Have seen no difference between 18-50 kit lens or DA 17-70 or my other lenses. It's the same general tendency with all of them.

I am interested in what sensor settings others are using; e.g. clarity, highlight, lowlight, noise etc. My current setting, which I am quite content with, is with them all set to OFF. For instance why have a 'clarity' setting; surely if it did something useful it would always be ON?
