New K10D

Just got my new K10D today! I haven't had time to play yet. While I'm reading through the manual, any suggestions, tips, quirks that I should know about?

I think 'read the manual front to back' would be a popular response.

And congrats on your K10D!

Buy a copy of Magic Lantern Guides: Pentax 10D and read it front to back.

This concise guide gives you the "why" and "how-to" of K10D features which complement the user manual which gives you the "what" of K10D features only. Magic Lantern Guides: Pentax K10D (Magic Lantern Guides): Peter K. Burian: Books

I agree with the Magic Lantern Guide suggestion. Much more helpful and decreases the learning curve.

Thanks guys. I've seen the magic lantern thing online for sale, but didn't know how good it would be, so thanks for the tip.
