Live view in K5IIs

Dear, I kindly need to know if there are any detailed instructions on how to use Live View in K5IIs that I suppose is the same of K5.
From my point of view the manual is not detailed enough.
Thanks for your reply.
Regards, Toni.

It's fairly simple- just hit the LV button to view the live view image, and press the OK button if you want to zoom in. Panning and zooming works just like in playback mode, though it's not quite as sophisticated as what you get in later bodies. Everything else works just like when shooting through the viewfinder, though of course different AF and metering technologies will be used.

The K-5 has no focus peaking.

I found out that you need to push the INFO button to zoom.

You're right- but this was changed on later models.

OK. And by that, do you mean later models in the K-5II/IIS range or do you mean the II/IIS being the later models?
