Can Kindle DX use lookup dictionary in PDF?

Hi good bookish people,
Im quite interested in getting this Kindle DX because of its PDF support, but want to make sure does the lookup function works in PDF file (text, not scanned)?

~i believe it wont, because some say the 5-way nav didnt work in PDF..

The pdf support is minimal on DX. It displays pdf's and that's it. No bookmarks, no searching, no nothing. Dictionary look up is out of the question too.

Searching now works on non-scanned PDFs with the 2.3 update (at least it does on K2).
