Problem with AF after Firmware Update (*istDS)

I posted this in another thread but I think it deserves its very own thread (b/c I'm special dagnabit!)

i just noticed this problem after the update: i can't seem to select a different AF point by using the keys next to the LCD. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a setting I need to change?

Not sure about correlation with a firmware update, but I assume you've verified that your camera is in the 'Sel' autofocus point mode rather than 'Auto' or 'center-only'? When using the 'green' automatic mode, I believe the camera will switch to 'Auto', disabling manually-selectable points.

Also, with which lens? I believe you can only use center point on your Pentax-M 50, but all points should work with your autofocus zoom lenses.

Also slightly related, I believe there's a custom setting that governs the use of the 'OK' button, whether it centers the AF point, invokes autofocus, or suspends autofocus.
