s it seems a bit more cumbersome to switch between AF modes and Metering modes, sure you can press an awkward button and move dials but i find it easier to go into the info screen and have it already at the AF squares ready to be changed. Metering you still must press the button. this shouldn't be an issue for most shooting as you tend to stay in a specific mode for a specific subject.

This is the first time for me that the ergonomics on a Pentax top level camera have just flopped, sure a lot of it is still good but some of it seems stupid and bass ackwards.

Just as I feared from looking at the camera. I absolutely love the direct AF and metering mode dials on my K5.

Still, good news in a way, at least I can save my upgrade money for the next generation.
