af confirmation w/ 645 MF lenses via K mount adapter on K30


I am using old but very decent 645 lenses on my k30.

when focusing manually the center af point still indicates when sharp. is there a way to get the other ones working too in MF. so something like an AF.C indication while in MF?

Unfortunately not. No Pentax DSLRs currently allow you to change the af point while using manual lenses.
