I know the k20 and k7 does (I use both my k7 and k20 for remote bracketing shots). I was under the assumption that the k-x does. I have since discovered it does not. I am not sure of the k10 (and am terrified to make any more assumptions ) so hopefully another fine forum member can let you know about the k10's remote bracketing capabilities.

The K10 has a 10 Mp CCD sensor compared to the K100 which has a 6 Mp CCD sensor. I cannot say about differences in controls; I came directly from an MZ-S. My K10 has two e-dials, with current firmware pressing [OK] turns the front e-dial into an ISO setter visible on top and in the viewfinder, and the only thing I find annoying is that the drive modes are all in menu, not on a nice switch like the MZ-S. It was very easy to switch between single and continuous, etc. with a little switch on top. I find [Fn] [Up] [back and forth] somewhat of a pain in comparison.

K10 requires the shutter button to be held down for the full bracket.

K20 can do a full bracket with just one tap of the shutter with a certain menu setting.

Also, it has been a while, but I'm fairly certain that at least once, despite being in manual mode, my K10 bracketed the aperture and not the shutter. In almost all situations you want to keep a constant aperture.

K100d will bracket with wired remote, not with wireless.

Cheers, Mike.
