Hrm ... How do I set the K-5 to ISO 80?!

Nothing seems to be found in the manual about how to activate the extended ISO range, so PLEASE, help!

Since there are posts about people getting K-5 without manual:
In menu you go to c1 screen,no' 3 is expended sensitivity and you change it to ON (2).

Is there any price to be paid for using ISO 80, i.e. any deleterious effects on IQ despite the slight gain in DR?

It took me forever to figure out how to get past that ISO160 thing. I'm glad I'm not the only one that struggled with that.
