My K10D has strong backfocus. I had to set it to +180. After adjusting this big focus problem, only center AF point is adjusted, and all the other points are the same as before. Is it the same thing with K-x debug mode adjustement, does it correct only center AF point?
Debug mode of Kx can choose which AF points to adjust. But I have no idea if it works.

Also, I am annoyed with inability to manual focus without the help of AF confirm indicator in the viewfinder, because everything I see as sharp image is actually backfocused. Is this also the same with K-x?
Adjust viewfinder diopter?

I hate to even think about buying brand new K-x, and to discover back/front focus issues. I really don't know why Pentax didn't implement focus correction in the menu like on K20D. This shouldn't be an extra feature, especially if Pentax don't bother to adjust focus with every digital body it sells.
With debug mode, I am not worried about back/front focus issue, unless the focus issue is in the lens. Then you need K20d/K-7.
