The menus are actually less fiddly in use, as you don't have to scroll  
to find what you want. The info screen bugged me at first. I don't  
even notice it any more -- 8000 frames later. High ISO RAW performance  
is about the same as the K20D, but metering is much more accurate, so  
the results are usually less noisy. Much better metering, considerably  
better autofocus (particularly i low light,) longer battery life, and  
faster write speed are the main benefits to my mind.
