K30 Viewfinder

Hi, I am planning on getting the K30 soon, but I have one question for all you K30 owners: when you look through the viewfinder, can you see autofocus points? If not, does this bother you or affect your autofocus success rate? I can't seem to find anything on this in the review or online. Thanks!

yes I can see them but it is up to you , you can disable or enable them in the Menu.
the only camera without a choice in K-x , no autofocus points visible , but that does not bother me at all, I have always set it up to "spot" (center)

Is the K30's focus screen the same as K5? Meaning if I have a Katzeye screen for the K5, can it be used in the K30?

I believe so, but I can't say 100% for sure (and I don't really want to mess with them just now).

Yes, Pentax Japan lists same screens for both (M*-60).
