That is what I call thinking outside of the box!!!

Does the K-x actual have lens dependent focus offset correction possibility like the K-7?
The focus isue was mentioned too in another thread - on new models - by another forum member.

The k-x doesn't have any focus offset correction possibility.

It does, but you have to go into the debug menu to access it. And it isn't adjustable per lens, like it is for up to 20 lenses with the K-7 and K20D.

So yes, this would be a good item to add to the firmware so that people could easily access it, if they need to.

I use center focus and there are occasionally focus errors in short mainly focus distances. No constant heavy front-back focus.

I would love to have Auto ISO option in manual mode if there will be any firmware updates.

The option of being able to program the Green Button to toggle SR on/off would be great.

Voice memo?
Shoot pic, press button, add a voice note.

My Fujifilm P&S has this and it is very handy for quickly recording locations, names etc for documentary shots, rather than scratching things down in a notepad. The hardware is already there (mic) in the K-x, K-7, K-r, K-5 etc.

Not a priority though.

The Time to Stop Dreaming has come.. I'm tired of holding my breath for Pentax to do us end users any free favors.
and from the last post 3 months ago I'm guessing everyone else has as well.

With the 1.02 firmware update it looks like nothing extra has come from Pentax except for being able to read SDXC memory card types.

Ohhh my... and some New Faults acording to this post. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/130081-k-x-firmwar...ml#post1363442

With firmware 1.02, there is a wrong exposure in LIVEVIEW with the lens FA 50mm 1.4.

For F=1.4 or F=1.8 there is an underexposure of about 3 stops.

I reinstalled firmware 1.01, it works fine with my FA 1.4 (in liveview)!
Someone else have had this issue?
I would just like to see some regular firmware updates for the K-x and would be happy for Pentax to call them Betas.

Yeah, flogging a dead horse comes to mind.

Is it really not possible to modify the firmware to implement some of these changes ourselves? Along the lines of CHDK for canon compacts. I know there is a website called pentax-hack but they don't seem to be getting anywhere? Their blog was last updated April 2010....

My only wishlist to have future firmware versions by history, this thread could be meaningless now as any worth firmware upgrade for k-x is unlikely.

After using a K10D for a while, one thing I would absolutely love in the K-x (or in any of the bodies) is if AE-Lock could be set to the half-press (without AF being set to the half press).

Whilst I can work without focus indication, how much per camera must it actually save them in the manufacturing process?? Surely we are talking pennies. I just don't understand this level of penny pinching on such a superb piece of kit!!! This one fault & I call it a fault loosely must put of a lot of first time slr buyers
Its not too bad, just use the OK button to set the focus point, with a bit of practice you know where the focus point is. Its a budget SLR after all, what more can you expect? I paid for my K-x as much as I would have for a good P&S. Not complaining.
