After updating to v1.10 firmware

Hello everybody,
It's been a week that I got my Pentax K5, and I've just installed the last firmware (v1.10).
For the moment I have only the Tamron 18-250mm.
Now, although I am not 100% sure, I think that two options from the menu are disabled (previously enabled at v1.01)
The first one is the "Lens Correction" and the second the "Input Focal Length".
Can someone confirm that this is not a problem?
I will appreciate your thoughts or help!

Regards,
Paschalis

Input focal length is only enabled when a manual lens is mounted.

Lens correction is only enabled on modern Pentax AF lenses.

"Input focal length" is always greyed out if the camera can detect the lens FL.
I suspect that lens correction is only available for lenses that are in the firmware database."

Thank you for your immediate responses!
I will have soon the Pentax 10-17mm, so the "Lens Correction" feature will be tested.

I have K5, Tamron 18-250 and now at firmware v1.10. Both should be greyed out with the Tamron fitted. "Lens Correction" becomes available with lenses such as the Pentax DA*300 f4.

This feature is not working for 10-17 Fish-eye lens, it is documented.

What am I missing......lens correction on my Bigma 50-500 worked perfectly. Are you saying it won't work on non Pentax lenses....I'm confused? I know it works because I set it way too high and the results showed, then adjusted to get it just right ...and it did. Explain?
Regards!
