live view zoom

I am sure this has been asked before but how do you zoom in live view with the K3?

Thanks

Just make sure you aren't in AF point select mode. If you are, press the AF point selection button first, and then the OK button will go back to controlling the zoom.

I noticed that on my K5iis when I push the shutter half way down it automatically zooms in then focuses. Can the K3 do this as well?
Thanks for the help so far

Not that I am aware of. Pages 19 and 33 in the K-3 manual outline the available options and functionality. If the feature you describe was included in firmware updates, it is something I am unaware of.

After playing with both cameras I discovered that you have to hit the OK button with the K3 in order to zoom instead of it zooming with the shutter halfway down as with the K5iis.
