[langtitle=sv]Adjusting default settings in K-7[/langtitle]

I'm new at digital photography but am fortunate to have a brand new Pentax K-7.
I've noted that in some reviews there is talk of adjusting default settings and stepping up or stepping down certain settings.

I realize this is very much a personal issue in that different people will have different feelings on the subject. Having said that I'm wondering if the Pentax "gurus" here have any input on the matter. Are there settings that most people adjust on the K-7?

Hoping to satisfy my curiosity.

PS/ the system insists on "translating" my english to english from swedish hence some peculiarities in the syntax
