K-7 and setting ISO range

Hi,
I have been struggling some time now because I want to set my K-7 to ISO100. Don't ask me why. Struggled so long that I forgot.
But how do I do that?
Neither the menu, nor the custom settings allow me to do so.

Help!

Thanks, Syb

First you have to enable the expanded iso range custom function, and then make sure shadow/highlight correction is off (expanded dynamic range).

Adam, is "expanded iso range custom function" referring to the same thing as "Expanded Sensitivity" in the menu? If so, then it's not true that it has to be enabled in order to get ISO 100. I just checked on my K-7; as long as the D-range settings are off, I can set 100.
