K-m remote trigger!

Why on earth did they remove the remote trigger port that the K100D had?

OK so I didnt use it!
my brother does!

so he will not buy a K-m even though he loves my K-m!

Shame as for his wildlife he usually uses it!

anybody else found this a hinderence?

Not hindrance, but more like an annoyance to me (especially because the wireless remote doesn't work together with autobracketing). But I guess not too many people using the K-m need this.

When buying the K-m I couldn't even think that the only option would be the IR remote. I really was hoping there would be a remote through the USB-port, but apparently even the Pentax Remote Assistant doesn't work with any other camera than K10D and K20D.

Sucks.

I ran into the IR remote / autobracketing menu problem on the K100, thus I went to the wired alternative. I have since acquired a K20, which solved the problem, but I still like the wired remote better. I actually want to try out the remote software utility, as I have some ideas using it. Also, when I get home and look at the images on the larger monitor, I usually come up with additional ideas that I should have tried. With the little netbooks, this route might provide a reasonable quick look ability.
