Does upgrading firmware reset debug-mode focus adjustment?

Hi all,

Just wondering if upgrading firmware resets any debug-mode focus adjustments done on a K-r? Or any other settings/camera.

Just wondering as I'm calibrating my Tamron 28-75 at the moment and I must have either messed up the (rather poorly set up) previous calibration test I did to fix FF/BF, or the lens has changed from use.

Just thought I'd ask while I try and find my USB cable that appears to have gone missing ... * I swear it's in my spaghetti-junction box of cables somewhere...or that bag...or draw... I suck at organising. *

Ta,

Woj

From what I remember (with my Ds & K-m), the global setting would be reset to 0 but the actual calibration was intact.

Actual calibration? I don't understand.
The firmware of the K-m should be about the same as of the K200D, but there is a global setting only.

Seems firmware upgrade does not reset the debug settings.

Spent this morning checking focus accross my lenses. Mainly for my tamron 28-75 2.8, and while I'm still not 100% happy with how that lens is focusing, got an ok middle ground. Had to set debug focus adjust to -100 and the menu one to -7. Seems excessive, something must be out of whack somewhere...but oh well.

Also, I'm getting more and more annoyed at how large the AF points on the K-r seem to be. Hell I only ever use the middle one but I wish it was smaller :/ Bring on the rumoured April announcements Pentax!

I've never launched debug-mode on my K-r. However, when I did my last firmware upgrade on my K-r, the option for Fine Focus Adjustment was kicked back to the default (option 1 - no adjustment), but when I switched back to option to set my own adjustment (option 2 - custom adjustment), my last tweaked value was there waiting for me.
