I've just finished checking the FF/BF on my new K5 and good news is that none of my lenses need adjustment.

What I did notice though was that the digital level is slightly innacurate, I checked it with a bubble and a hotshoe digital level - it's not a big problem as it's only slight - shame there's no manual adjustment on this though.

I think mine is out by about 2 rectangles on the rear screen. As you say a calibration or manual adjustment would be handy.

Definitely, I'll still find it useful especially when out hiking and using it with my monopod - it will at least only be a degree or two from level instead of the 45 degrees I normally seem to manage I especially like it when setup with the RAW/FX button
