Hi penolta,

Thanks!

For those that don't know, the K7 required a press of the OK button before changing focus points in Select Point Mode. This was widely panned as a problem by many early adopters. The firmware update allows the user to choose between focus point select and the 4-way controller functions as default. Personally, I use Center Point, and now Auto Multipoint the great majority of the time, so this was not a major concern to me. There were also some complaints about irregular performance when one of the extreme outside focus points was selected. It is nice to know that Pentax reacted in a matter of weeks to those who did complain, and I think it shows that they are determined to make the K7 a model to be reckoned with.
