K100D Super - Focus point locked to center in Manual Focus ?

I am using SMC Pentax-A 50mm/f2.8 lens with K100D Super. In the Rec menu, the option for "Swtch dst mst pt" is grayed out and is fixed at "Center". Is this normal?

That's normal for an "A" lens - only the Centre focus point is usable for focus trapping or using the focus indicator to help manual focus.

Potentially not....see this. I'm going to do some more testing and verify.
