Only five font sizes in K2?

Watching the video again, it mentions that the K2 has only FIVE font sizes! Anybody know what they are and what the largest one is?

Not that I am contemplating upgrading, as am perfectly content with my K1, but if it every should die of old age, then there is only one choice now.

If they don't have the largest size as 20 point anymore, that is a total deal killer for me and many others with vision problems.

Say it ain't so, Bezos.

I see SIX fonts when I press the font button on my K2. And the biggest one is quiet big - I don't know what font size that would be though.

From the downloadable K2 users guide

Changing the Text Size
You can adjust the size of the text to suit your preference. You have a choice of six sizes for
reading content on Kindle. (You cannot change the text size on menus or on Kindle screens, such
as the Home screen or the Kindle Store.)

I usually use 3, but when reading in bed I use 4.

Six on mine... the smallest seems to be about the size of a densely printed paperback or slightly larger. My Kindle 2 defaulted to Size 4, and that about as small as I'm willing to go.
