For the curious, here are "my" adjustment values (daylight/tungsten):

DA 21mm f/3.2 (+40/-20)
FA 31mm f/1.8 (0/-80)
DA 40mm f/2.8 (0/-80)
FA 50mm f/1.4 (-60/-120)
FA 77mm f/1.8 (0/-80)

IMO this is scary that the AF performance can be this inaccurate based on the lens. On the contrary to how you see this I think its terrible Pentax cant get the AF right. Sure its very nice having this option leaked (which we are not officailly supposed to have) and to be able to adjust it based on the lens and the lighting condition we are shooting in but this is obviously something that shouldnt work and be this way. The public should have no access to the Debug menu obviously and nor is having to change the settings everytime one has to change lenses very fun either. Sure its not hard but thats not the point. Also since 99% of K10 users will not know about the Debug menu option this seems like terrible performance by the SAFOX engine. At least thats how I see it.

BTW - I find that -120 to -140 (incandescent light/depending on lens) improves mt DA18-55, DA50-200, DFA100 and FA50 but messes up my DA10-17 fisheye which only requires a little adjustment of -50 or so.
