Can you explain this diagram in k-5/k-5II manual?
Nov 22, 2012

I'm a new K-5II user -- but for this issue it is the same with the regular K-5. I like the Program Line (P Line) where I can choose MTF and let the camera remember which f-stops work best for which lens.

My question is, "is there a difference between what the Green Button (right hand column) is able to do when you have the e-dials set to Av & Tv -- the top 2 rows -- versus what it can do when you have it set to exposure compensation & P shift?

It appears to say that if you have your K-5 set to P - Line and you want Hyper-program with the e-dials set to Av & Tv then you will lose P- Line and go back to regular Program move if you touch the Green Button.

How do you configure your e-dials for Program mode?
