If you have one of the e-dials set to control ISO, then the ISO will appear permanently...in place of the # of shots left! Is it too much to ask to have both?
Well, as noted, that's useless in hyperprogram or manual mode.

I was agreeing with Matt when he said: "Why there isn't an option to just always show it is beyond me."

It's good to know that I can punch the OK button to SEE the ISO, and can change it without going into the Fn screens. But Matt's right: it should be visible in the viewfinder all the time, or at least that should be an option.

D'oh! Sorry, then.

Yeah, that's also true.

Well I'm easily satisfied because now I have more ISO options that I didn't have with my KM7D. This is really important for weddings where you are always changing the ISO to suit the light. This is a big advantage over the film days, hope i don't hurt any purists, lol. I guess you just have to remember what ISO you're using.

I dunno, I rarely need to know the # of shots left very often. I just hit 'ok' - and I see the count, and continue shooting.

You can set the ISO by pressing and holding down the OK button while turning the front dial. The camera also displays the current ISO while pressing the OK button, both in the viewfinder and on the top display. It’s not in the manual as the function came in one of the early firmware updates. (This goes for the K10d)

You can also set a custom function to utilize one of the scroll wheels in conjunction with the OK button, to set ISO without going through the Fn menu.

Which has the awesome side-effect of making it show up in the viewfinder all of the time.
This is great information guys. This ought to be a sticky for future readers.
