K10D: True spot focus? Approx. Size?

Is this information available somewhere? I could not find.

Later > meant to ask about spot metering.

Most Pentax SLR cameras, both film and digital, have been 6%. Based on the diagrams I have seen I have my money on this one being the same. While a seperate spot meter can be as fine as 1%, 6% is still very good and very useful.

As big as the markings in the viewfinder for the spotmeter. I think it's expressed as 6 degrees, but could be wrong.

I suppose you asked about the central spot AF bracket mark but not about the spot metering.

See my this test report: RiceHigh's Pentax K100D Full Review

I checked for both! See the diagram included for the spot focus.

p.s. Pentax chief designer of the K10 said that the K100D and K10D share the same AF system, with the same accuarcy.

Sorry, meant to ask about spot metering. Must have been late. 6% sounds about right.
