Another (CLEAN!) wishlist topic.

Just for statistics, curiosity and clean user feedback.
No other comments, one line per feature, title and short description.
You should also mention features that exist and are very important - the ones you'd hate to be removed (like they did with DFS or remote capture).
Listed in order of importance.
Pentax isn't going to dig trough tens of thousands of threads to see what users want.
This might even be useful as sticky.
Here i go:

-DFS disable. A true option to COMPLETELY disable it.
-Manual MLU. The one where first click rises mirror, second fires shutter.
-AF drive selection SDM/Screw.
-Better eye level. Increase the distance from which you can see the whole viewfinder contents.
-Remote capture. Or at least a primitive way to offer third party/open source support.
-LED AF Assist. And one that starts working very soon (as the light level drops).
-Hyper-focal AF. And some additional AF optimization settings.
-Total dynamic range of scene indication (e.g. trough OK button).

P.S. Mike would you please delete/edit your post, so not to make another Unreadable off-topic, like most of the 50 you mention are.

- 28mm lens
- True custom mode (for example, one could do: Set aperture manually, change shutter first; shutter free range but not below 1.5x focal length, change ISO last; ISO free range. Etc. etc.)

I'll second adam's request for TTL flash

In addition, I would like the option for manual lenses to input the maximum aperture, so the camera in green button mode with K and M lenses, could meter correctly.

If they will go back in time, I would like exposure compensation in manual mode on the K10D (the only camera it is not on)
