K5-II focus confirmation in Live View?


Playing with the K5-II I see I can zoom in and check focus in Live View - but is there any way to get the focus confirmation beep/light like when you're not in Live View? Or better yet a display of the computed contrast so you can maximise it yourself with MF lenses?

I should clarify - I mean in MF mode. I get the beep when AFing but not when MFing.

I cannot believe this was not answered yet. I'm sure you've already found the answer to the question but it seems there is no beep confirmation while in live view using manual focus. The best thing to do is use the info button to zoom in 6x.
