K-X debug mode vs K-5/K-5II

I have a question about the K-X debug mode where you can adjust autofocus. I can adjust in steps of ten and I can go up well above +/- 200. How does this compare to the K-5? Are the steps/units of micro adjust the same? It is my impression on the K-5 you can only micro adjust to +/- 10? Why the apparent discrepency?

I use the K-x debug as well. It's calibrated in Ám (micro-metres) and adjustments can be made in units of 10Ám.

If respondents are able to discuss the K-5 adjustments in terms of Ám (if that is known), then we can all be on the same page and not talking at cross purposes. Otherwise one man's 10 may be no more than another man's 1.
