No Mirror Lockup on the D300? HUH??

It's no big deal, but...

Pentax K200D and K20D do mirror lock-up differently. When you set the self-timer and press the shutter release the mirror locks up first and then the timer starts.

I realise that no one is going to swap their D300 for a K200 just for this feature, but it is hard to see why other makers don't follow the Pentax example. On my dear old Olympus OM2 I could compose the picture, lock up the mirror and then start the self timer. Why not on a brilliant new DSLR?

I presume that this is what the review is drawing attention to.
