Value of the New K10D Firmware

A couple of days ago, I installed 1.1 in my K10D. It's got a couple of nice features and some new options, but the best thing for me was it "forced" me to plod through the e-dial assignment options in the Custom menu. The most important change I made, assigning e-dials for exposure compensation in Av and Tv modes, were available on 1.0.

Personally, I changed my "1.0" settings for these modes, which was +/-EV on the front dial, to ISO on the front dial. I find the EV compensation button easier to hold down (while rotating a dial) than the OK one.

Which is what I should have done, but never bothered to look. Thus, the value of 1.1.

I had EV comp in 1.0, what I like in 1.1 is ISO without using Fn button - it's as easy as exposure comp with the EV button.

Me too. Frankly, the ease of managing exposure on the K10D (vs my DS2 - which I still enjoy and use) is the reason I bought the camera; 1.1 just makes it better.
