Pentax K-5II ISO problem

I have a K-5II and the lowest ISO setting available to me is ISO 200. Handling the same body today at a camera store I discovered that is started at ISO 100.
Searched product reviews and specs and see that mine is supposed to start at ISO 100.
Any ideas or suggestions as to why it doesn't?

Is highlight correction turned on? See page 190 in the manual. If it is turned on, the minimum ISO is 200.

...and you can even expand the range of ISO down to 80 (page 84 in the manual).
