New K-3iii / not finding menu item

Perhaps it's not there, or maybe my eyes are getting tired. I want to disable the half-press focus operation, but where is this option hidden?

Is it in here?

- Custom 2 > AF/AE Lock Settings > Still Image > Shutter/AF Button > Second option down seems to disable shutter button AF and enable back button AF

By the way, there are look-up tables available here to map your old camera's menu to the new K-3 III menu.

You may wish to check that you have the latest firmware in the camera.

In conjunction with the look-up table mentioned by JPT it can be useful to have a pdf copy of the manual (available here Operation Manuals Download : Support & Service | RICOH IMAGING ) on your computer to use as a searchable document

Yes, that's what I was seeking, and thank you. Camera was just delivered yesterday and I was up late trying to "cram for the exam".

To be honest this Pentax worldwide complaining about the new menu, I don't quite understand.With the touch screen, I have never been so fast to configure a new camera. The logic is not too different with respect to the old one, but it is much faster now to maneuver.

PS Still wishing to be able to export / import camera settings from a file.
PPS This transfer tables, I was aware of, but the wording is often somewhat misleading. Because even if the function is the same, the wording has changed, sometimes.
PPPS No, I ahve no Ricoh camera, that already has a similar menu.
