Question re: K-50 viewfinder display

Hi,


I've read that the K-50 has af point illumination; I'm curious as to whether it is done via an LCD overlay as in Nikons.


Specifically, without any batteries in the body, does the K-50 still allow a normal view (i.e. not dark and blurry) through the viewfinder? Any information would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks!

No, it uses a different system where LED's flash inside the viewfinder.

Batteries or no batteries, the VF doesn't change. It's clear.
