How do I get my K-5 ISO setting to 80...doesn't seem to want to go there...minimum it goes to is 100.

Thanks

You need to enable the expanded iso range in the custom function menu.

You need to check the menu for expanded ISO and after you enabled it everything from 80-51200 is selectable in every mode.

No problem! Just to avoid a future "problem", if you enable "Highlight Correction" minimum ISO rise to 160. Just happy to help!
