K3 CIF question and A* 200 macro pix

Just a quick question regarding CIF on the K3: is it possile to select a focus point other than the central one for CIF? How about auto-select focus points? As far as i know, neither is possible on the K5, but it would be verrrry nice for my 200 macro!

Also where does diffraction kick in on the K3? On the K5, f/11 is still tack sharp, f/14 has visibly more DOF but is usually too soft for my taste.

Ricoh, can i have some auto-bellows please? All i need is the TC minus the lens and minus the electronics... (Ron, which older TC should i get to remove the elements but still keep auto-exposure?)

Here are some macros from yesterday. K5 (manual mode) + A* 200 macro + diffused flash (Sigma 610 super in p-ttl mode)

And one from last month

Thanks for looking!
