I recently borrowed my friends K-500 and to my dismay discovered it did not have any focus points displayed in the viewfinder. SO how do you confirm which focus point of the 11 was selected in the photograph? It seems like an odd omission.

There's nothing odd about it.

Ricoh Imaging made the excellent K-50 (yes, it's basically a K-30); an affordable camera with high-end features like 100% viewfinder and weather sealing.

However, they also needed a slightly cheaper model (without having to design a new body) - so they removed the weather sealing, AF points illuminator and orientation sensor.
