I tend to use center point focus mostly so the way the camera comes is fine with me. However, I can understand how many would be unhappy and I have done stuff where I've used the selector. It's nice that we now have a choice which way it will work - I could see occasionally going in and changing the function if I were using the selective focus point a lot for something.
Penolta - thanks for posting the link to the Japanese site. I tried using Safari to access the Pentax Imaging (US) site and it doesn't work right. Tried Firefox next and got to the instruction page (I couldn't get it with Safari), but didn't see the links to the downloads. Your link worked like a charm.
