"The LCD display is on and bright until you half press"

There is an option to activate the LCD display only with the menu button.

The exposure bracketting also exists on the K-m, albeit it's only 3 shots. It's under the drive mode (Auto Bracket).

I also agree that the top LCD is no big deal. The back LCD works well enough and when shooting the viewfinder is more important anyway.

What I miss on the K-m vs my K20D is the lack of TAv mode and the lack of direct ISO control (OK+front dial in M mode). The 11-points selectable AF on the K20D is also more interesting. But the K-m is definitely less hesistating for locking focus. The buffer is also too small on the K-m, 4 raw is not a lot and it takes time to clear the buffer even with a fast card.

Can someone make fotos to compare between k-m and k20d in noise?
For example iso800 and iso1600?

No photos, but my experience is that the K20D sensor is about one stop better than the K-m sensor at high ISO. I will shoot with auto- ISO up to 2200 on the K20D, but only up to 1100 on the K-m.
