Question about K-01 handling of lens aperture

As much as the K-01 has been discussed here, I am still not clear on one aspect of its operation: does the LCD screen display the DOF for the selected aperture of the lens or does it use the lens wide open (as a DSLR would)?

Its works like a DSLR until it goes to meter, basically.

Like a DSLR it does have depth of field preview - you can assign DOF preview to one of the buttons, I forgot to which one.

You can assign either button (red or green) actually

Cool! It's nice they made the DOF preview configurable. Thanks for the answers!
