Ripit -- yes, I also wish it would beep when you focus in Manual Focus mode... but it doesn't. It only beeps in AF Auto Focus.

But -- if you have time -- in MF Manual Focus, if you press the OK button, it will magnify the screen. Up to 6X, if you turn the top dial. This can be a great help. But, if you are in a hurry, Auto-Focus!
Thanks for the info. I was playing with it earlier and used the 2 times zoom but wasn't aware of the 6X with the dial at the time.

IIRC, Pentax gave the K-01 a beefier AF motor to help overcome some of the shortcomings of CDAF. That's based on a translated interview with the design team I posted in another thread.
Under more ideal shooting conditions and with the right les, it is rather zippy and fast despite having to focus back and forth. Its seems faster than my ist-ds under good lighting and with a short throw lens.
