Just thought I'd add that the Preview/DOF switch has the option of Closing down the aperture to check DOF, as well as a digital preview. Recording menu 5, 5.

Unless I'm missing reading your post, it seems that you have all you need to test it yourself. Move your external usb3 reader from the desktop to the laptop and compare file transfer on the usb2 to the usb3.

I definitely see a difference in transfer times on my usb3 compared to my usb2. I have 95 MB/s U3 class 10 SD cards so they make use of the faster capability of the reader.

By the way, having the U3 cards are not necessary for the camera's write speed, as the internal camera write to memory is relatively slow. I could test no difference with 40MB/s cards in camera v. the 95 MB/s cards.

I have been running V6II's on my K1 and subsequent my K1-II.
Works fine on both the Cactus Flash or with the Cactus V6II receiver driving a Pentax 540 & 201 and Yongou 660.
You have to use a trigger and receiver on the Pentax flash, whereas the Cactus has the Radio built in.
I've run them in manual or TTL (Pentax and Cactus). I've had no problems using 2 flashes at a time and passthru for a third for an experiment.
I typically use manual with excellent result using multiple channels, with easely adjusting outputs individually.
