Live View On K-5.

I used my 1.2 for the first time today and discovered that you can't take a preview snapshot but you can take a pic. Strange.

I have the camera set-up to take a preview through the use of the RAW/FX button. When LV is in use, you can't do the preview. Or to explain another way, when using a 1.2 lens at it's maximum aperture and I want to make sure I'm in focus by using the Info button to zoom in LV , I'd have to use a tripod to ensure my focus point stays the same.

K5 has a dicated button for preview, it's the third setting on the on of switch.
There are 2 preview types, DOF preview and a preview where it takes an actual shot, maybe that's your problem.
