M42 performance on K20D?

I just wanted to hear from folks about how the K20D does with m42 lenses.

1. Is metering any more accurate than with the K10D? I'm referring to the problem of stop-down metering leading to over-exposure.

2. Any performance boost from the sensor? There was talk that the design of the photo sites meant that the sensor would do better off-axis light, and as such work better with some older lenses.
