Q: Do you want to operate auto focus during movie recording?
Answer: During movie shooting, auto focus does not work follow.
The AF operation by pressing the AF / AE-L button while shooting a movie by setting the AF operation to "customize button" AF / AE-L button on the menu "shooting

As I understand - there is AF, but it's not real to operate AF during video...

Need anybody with Japanese...

As I understand, AF is not continous in video mode, but can be enabled by pressing AF/AE-L button.

Maybe that is like with Olympus Pen PL-1 that can be refocussed during filming by pressing a button. Not constand AF, but still a good option to refocus again.

Menu button customization AF/AE-L button operation establishment while video recording when the AF/AE-L button is pressed.

Basically "動画撮影中" means "in the middle of video is being recorded," so unlike the K-5 and earlier cameras, the K-01 will be able to focus when the camera is recording. The question will be if it is continuous while the button is down, or if it will lock on and then stop until the button is let go and pressed again. My guess is the latter. Either way it's a nice improvement over existing cameras.
