manual focus lens on K1

I have the K1 and when I shoot with some auto lens (like FA series), I set the viewfinder to have 9 point (square) focus indicator and it works fine, however, when I switch to manual focus lens (like A series), there will only one indicator (square) left in the center, just like the spot mode. Is this normal for the manual lens or I missing some settings ? Thanks.

Yup, it's normal. You only get center point AF confirmation with manual lenses.
