Question of focus with a manual lens on a K-01

They say "you can use any lens with a "K" mount. So what! how do you focus a manual lens unless there is focus tweaking programed into the K-01. "Best guess" in not any way to capture a sharp photo.
The reason I would buy this camera is that all my old lenses would work on it. If not, moot point.
Does anyone know if there is focus tweaking?

there is focus peaking working both in still and video mode (should be the same as the ricoh gxr with m-mount module), people say that that is best peaking among the various types

pics from ricoh gxr + a12 module Peaking mode 2





peaking mode 1 at 4:15
peaking mode 2 at 4:40
and both again at 6:15

Even without focus tweaking, a loupe and live view is usually a good solution.
