What is your Favourite Feature?

As the title says!
What is your favourite feature on/in the K-1?
Be it a button, a function, whatever!


I haven't tried everything yet, but something I really was pleasantly surprised to find the (aperture) preview function on the on/off switch.
I think this is probably the best possible placement for this switch and I'll surely use it a lot!

And the articulating screen of course, but it's needless to say that it's great.

Today I had the chance to use the composition feature to get the correct perspective on a city scape. It worked on both 35mm and 50mm. In combination with the built in level it functioned almost like a view camera.

Ok, I'll add a more serious reply: the customizable control panel makes life a lot easier

SR-II and its 5 stops should correct any fatigue-shake from the extra weight!

So far it's flexible screen, it gives so much freedom; the more I use it, the more I love the design.

This is a feature I really like, although I wouldn't claim it is the best feature!

The "Lock" button to "Disable Operation Controls". No more accidentally nudging the wheels in the heat of the moment.

I have been using it just about all the time since I got the camera.

The viewfinder - it's the single biggest upgrade over the APSC bodies IMO. So large and clear (especially for a glasses wearer like me).

The mount
Nah, that's nothing ... That's been around since, ... Well my K7s got the same one so from 2009 at least!

It's not the size of the the mount, it's whats behind it that counts ... Oh, and how you use it ....

I have two things. Viewfinder (compared to the K5), and the third control dial.

The flexible screen and The VF.also nice that they put the play button on the right side.
Hope they make the 2 buttons on the left side bigger or not close.
