K7 - No Iso 100?

Is there some setting on the K7 that stops you from using Iso 100? If not I may have a strange issue on my hands. I realised that my K7 will not use Iso 100 in any mode except "USER" mode. The lowest I can go is Iso 200. Am I missing something or is it time to use that warranty?

You must have Dynamic Range turned on. Turning on highlight correction will automatically limit the smallest ISO to 200. If you turn off highlight protection, you should be able to go down to ISO 100 again.

I don't really understand the Highlight Protection thing on the K7.

I keep it off because I prefer to shoot @ 100 iso.

Is there really any benefit of using it?
