You forgot Pentax has a Sv mode which is not in your poll...

And is there a difference between P and Auto?

it really depends on shooting style, but for everyday use (landscape and portrait) A priority for me.

Start with AV mode, if desired picture cannot be achieved then to M mode..

I usually switch between aperture priority or M. But mostly I use M. Saves the trouble of doing trial & error.

Yep there is. P= Programmed Auto. Auto=Full Auto. P allows you to do some minor tweakings. Exposure parameters come in 'sets.' To change exposure, you change the 'set,' ie both aperture and shutter speed changes together.

Normally shoot in Av, but if it's a challenging scene to expose, or Av gives me wacky results, then I switch to M.
