K5 and the focusing indicator the red dot


well im having trouble picking up this red dot that you get on the view finder.specially in well lit virtually don't know where it actually there a setting that i can use to increase the brightness of this red dot.

im not trying to bash the K5, but i tried out the D7000 which belongs to one of my friends and i think the black square you get, to indicate the focus area is much better

I would suggest that you set your camera to centre-focus. This is simple and very effective.

Hope that the comment will help.
