Updated mine last nite, no prob so far.

btw, I assigned the Help button to "Custom Image" insted. it's easier in case I need to change image parameters like contrast, saturation, sharpness, etc.

First impression maybe...

Well, I used to have K10D which I think was heavy, but it was capable of taking pictures I want to. I think it should be the same with K-m judging the same sensor.

So...why K-m?
Mainly because of its size and weight. I want a camera that I can carry all the time.
After handling K-m for a while, I am happy it's the one I have been looking for. It is small for my hand but the grip is just nice. There is more space for my fingers to firmly hold it.

I have not taken many pictures with it to judge its image quality.
Initial impression is that it has better AWB than K10, especially in mixed or artificial lighting. ISO 1600 is usable. I like the part where ISO 3200 is available when needed.

Focus locks faster in dim light...checked, better than K10 definitely. Due to its one focus point only, I assigned AE-lock to AF button. Focus-recompose is easier this way.

The best part is, pairing K-m with 43 ltd...maaaan, awesome. :lovegrin:
I am missing the green button as I do a lot of M mode, but it's only a matter of habit.

Might post a report on K-m later on when time permits.

air convent sais that there is a high possibility that K-M is not coming to singapore, according to shriro.

Yup, that's what I heard so far but then again, there is no rule to say they cannot change their minds too. Who knows with competition heating up, they may opt to replace the K200D with the K-M which is easier on newbies and the pocket too ;)
