K-1 - number of AF points shown in A-33 mode

Hi everybody, at the moment I'm a little bit confused.

Usually I only use Spot as autofocus mode. Now I tried the other possibilities SEL1, A-9 and A-33.

When pushing AF mode button and spinning the back dial the modes SEL1 and A-9 the AF points are shown properly in the viewfinder. But A-33 is represented only by 15 AF points. Same when using the back display for selection.

Is this ok?

Maybe the shown number of visible AF points depend on an additional other setting?

Any ideas? - Thanks in advance!

P.s. Firmware 1.20

Just did another test. I changed the attached lens. The problem occurs using the HD DA15.

Now I attached the DA18-135. And what shall I say. All autofocus points are shown!

So it has something to do with the attached lens?! - Any similar observations and/or explanation?

When you put on the DA15, does the camera go into Crop mode?

same behaviour in crop and ff mode

checked the mount. DA15 is KAF, DA18-135 is KAF3. Maybe this is the reason?

KAF shouldn't be the reason. My DFA100WR uses also the KAF mount. No problem - all AF points are shown.

Anybody who owns a K-1 and DA15 and would like to do me the favour to try if there's the same behavior in A-33 mode?

If the whole 33 focus points are visible, I know that my DA15 has a small issue.
