Switching ISO K20D

Is there a quicker way to change the ISO on the K20D without going into the function menu?

Thanks

Try holding the OK button and turning the front dial.

Unless the dial is occupied, on many settings, you can assign ISO to the front dial.

What I do is, go to Av mode, adjust ISO with the front dial, and return to M

Annnnnnnd...Never again!
Holding OK button and front dial adjusts ISO.
Thanks!

AHAHAH. Things I never bothered to find out....I really should read the manual.

Never let my wife see this. She always says "Look in the owners manual."

Like Ricky, I just did a facepalm after learning how to use the OK button to change ISO when in M mode. But the manual -- in the K10D manual at least, it says nothing about the OK button in the section on changing the ISO sensitivity, nor on any page containing the acronym "ISO" (I just checked in the PDF version). I never would have discovered this on my own, so thanks JohnBee!

Pretty sure that was a firmware update change, so wouldn't have been in the manual!

Ah, you're right -- version 1.10. I suppose I should print off all the firmware changes and paste them into my manual. And annotate the index...
