With "Display Sensitivity" = On, the ISO displays on the viewfinder and top LCD, and the OK button does nothing.
Actually, holding OK and rotating the front wheel will allow you to quickly change ISO in the following modes: Green, P, M, B, X.

Yes. This is a known feature. And a great one IMO. Check out OK+Green also.

I'm going to reply to your posts in this feature requests thread here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/25036-space-left-s...tml#post220455

In green mode which is supposed to be a very useful mode and efficient for someone not used to take picture, the flash should open automaticaly.
Actually, what you should do is to leave the flash open all the time in green mode. The camera will decide when to flash and when not to flash. Green mode is the only mode where the flash will not always fire in the open position (in all other modes, the flash is forced to fire when open).

If there isn't an existing thread for the request you're posting here... PLEASE make one first, so we can all discuss your idea *there*.

And if you're just created a discussion thread for a request you've already added to this list, Thank you! Please edit to add your link to your original post.


K20D Firmware ONLY, Fix & Feature Requests

1. Option for AF Button to perform AF action (if possible) even if body set to MF

For the AF button to "AF when pressed" if the lens has an AF motor, even if the body is set to MF. Might be an option. Might not.

Discussion at https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/24709-another-idea...-add-k20d.html

2. "Button" entry to Live View. Possibly Fn (brings up menu) then "Green"

A multi-key sequence such as "fn" (to open the function menu) then "green" to start live view would make live view helpful for those who use optical preview.

Discussion at https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/24709-another-idea...-add-k20d.html

3. *option* for Delete + Delete to delete the current image in review.
(But not to change "default" behavior!)

Also at https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/24709-another-idea...-add-k20d.html

4. Add/Restore "OFF" setting for "Slow Shutter Speed NR" option.

This problem effects response time for exposures over 0.3s and makes fireworks & night photography difficult. This is already available on the K10D & K200, and hopefully was left out / removed by accident. *FIX*

See https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/22521-finally-some...bout-k20d.html

5. Hyperfocal Program Setting and/or Indicator.

Perhaps the AF Button could toggle this?

See https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/19781-idea-future-...ocal-mode.html

6. Teleconverter multiplier setting.

Setting for a manual teleconverter multiplier. Should effect EXIF. Might effect SR. Might also be 'reset' upon each lens change. See http://<br /> https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/244...onverters.html

7. "Info Screen" should include memory: "number of shots remaining" estimate.

When pressing "Info" (in non playback mode), the screen should include a count of the number of shots remaining before the SD card is full

Discussion thread here: discussion: Space left on SD card?

-----------------------
[8] Review Screen Overlay which includes shutter speeds & aperture should also include ISO.

With scalable sensor sensitivity ISO has become as easy and flexible a setting as shutter speeds & aperture. Pentax has embraced this concept by providing TAv & SV modes, and this critical piece of information should be available on the 'limited/essential' review screen - ideally below or across from Tv "& Av.

No dedicated thread, but it should fit in nicely here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/24709-another-idea...-add-k20d.html
