K30-Face detection

Quick question: when using face detection in live view and there are multiple faces present, the k30 shows which face it will use for autofocus and also shows the other faces it has detected. Is there a way to change which detected face to use for focus?

Nope. I think it works just like standard multi-point CDAF, with the faces being treated as the active AF points.
