K-x and Lens Compensation

Answer me this... does the K-x offer automatic compensation of distortion and lateral chromatic aberration when DA and D-FA lenses are used and jpgs are being shot? The K-7 offers this and perhaps it's ridiculous to expect it with the K-x... but I'm asking just to get a definitive answer.

I am not sure if the lateral CA is covered (and camera isn't in front of me), but distortion correction is definitely a menu option.

Yep, both lens distortion correction and lateral CA correction are in the K-x.

Some people even report the CA correction working for non-Pentax lenses too, I've read in another forum, even though it appears to be off when a non-Pentax lens is on the mount.
