Steve, I think you are right. I've just read that it drops down so often that I didn't trust my own senses when I observed otherwise. Thanks

I'll probably still continue to use MUP because I want to tell the camera when to take the image, not have it exactly 2 or 12 seconds after remote trigger.
I'll hazard a guess that the 12-second timer doesn't lock up the mirror, this is how previous models have worked - anyone with a k-1 want to verify?

I'm not sure about all models, but I think since at least k100d days mirror lock up with the 2-second timer has been standard, and actually the only way to get mirror lock up with the 'lower' models.

True 2-press MUP for the win though, I'm with you on that.
