K-3ii AF Button Function

I think I now know the answer but to be sure, is there a way to configure the AF button (or any other button) to pull the focus point back to the centre point in AF-S or AF-C modes?

Coming from a K-20D it's quite a performance leap, but still easy to use. I'm going to have some dramas getting used to the AF/Function toggle button at the lower right though. I can already foresee some accidental button depressions in the near future.

As long as you're in the AF point selection mode (after pressing the button in the lower right), the OK button resets the active AF point back to the center. You don't have to press both buttons each time. As long as the AF point selection mode is highlighted on the status screen, that's what the OK button will do.

Brilliant, thanks. I missed that little detail after two readings of the manual.
