K5iis Live view focus

I've noticed that when I focus my K5 iis in Live view that the camera zooms into the scene. Is this unique to the K5ii and iis?

But you can disable this function in K-30. And it's unreal in K-5 and K-5II.

I'm away from my manual so I can't check, but can you zoom in to the picture in live view and then manually focus a certain portion on the K-5? I know the Canikon owners can.

press info while in live view, use the 4-way to move the zoomed section around

Thanks adpo, just when I thought I knew most of what I needed to know about my K5 another handy feature presents itself. It made my day.
