i think that does not matter, it is ok to use the centre focus point ,and then you can recompose

Does the K-x too has the feature of using the 'OK' button to use for 'focusing' instead of half-click the shutter release button? I hope so, as I am used to this method in K200.

Pentax K-X kit with 18-55 and 50-200 or 50-300 may be the best deal there is for various reasons.
I have exactly the K-x with the two kit zooms only 18-55 and 50-200

Please take a look at Kx in Use for the typical results I am getting
Many still pooh-pooh the kit zooms - please look at Post #11.

However, there is one issue that bothers me and that's the lack of selected focus point indication in the viewfinder.
How much an issue is this? I would seem to me that not knowing where the camera focused while taking pictures in the viewfinder may be a serious issue.
What do you think?
I thought I would miss the focus point indication in the viewfinder as well. In the past I have used that feature sometimes. Most of the time now I just use center focus point and reposition if needed. Focus on the K-x, I have found, is Very accurate.

not the OK button, but you can program the AE-L button to do this.
i use this all the time when shooting outdoor sports.
