low iso setting

The lowest ISO setting I can get on my K5, after enabling extended ISO, is 160. It`s not a big issue, but I`m curious to know if anyone else has found this.

That's probably because you have enabled "Highlight correction". If you turn that off, you'll get one step more, i.e. 80.

Thanks for clearing that one up. I obviously didn`t use my eyes.
Thanks again
