Review picture time or press

On my k30, when I take a picture, I have the choice to have it displayed for some time -3 or 30 seconds.
CAn't I have displayed until I press some key or the shutter? On my Panasonic LX3, that was the mode I put it on, and I have come to understand that is the best setting I can have, as I can see it displayed for the time I want, and then just touch the shutter and the camera is ready for another picture being taken!

I have searched, and nowhere to be found - Maybe on the next firmware update then...

You can press the review button and it will stay up until the camera times out and goes to sleep.

If you tap the shutter button, the image will go away, but I don't think it'll let you look at it forever

Zorza you are correct that the best option available is the 30sec review.
If you zoom in on the review then it stays there until you half press the shutter.
