Dl to K20 help

I have just moved from a dl to the K20, a bit of a leap for me but one which I think will be an enjoyable learning curve.

For anyone worried about the size of the camera I find iit s not an issue the k20 seems to sit in the hands naturally and it depends on the lens size anyway.

i am traveling to India in a week, I usually shoot raw in Av mode I would be grateful if anyone out their could share any advice re custom settings, I will be reading the manual from cover to cover but advice is always welcome.
Many thanks,
John

If you shoot RAW, you will find out that the K20d has a voracious appetite for memory card. Get a few more (at least 4G). I found out my 2G cards were always full, so I got a few 4G and 8G.
