K-S2 Live View Exposure Simulation/Preview

Does the Pentax K-S2 have complete implementation of Exposure simulation, including Aperture Preview??

Canon has a complete implementation of Exposure simulation, even in it's entry level offerings, Nikon is pretty bad in this regard, It does not provide it during clicking stills in it's APSC cameras, only in movie mode, that too not with aperture preview.

So is the Live view exposure preview K-S2 up to the mark with Canon??

I believe you can set the RAW/Fx button to DoF preview in either liveview or viewfinder. (At least I can in my K-50)
DoF preview stops down the aperture to the F-stop you are shooting at.

DoF preview is good feature, but I'm saying does the Live view screen reflect changes made to Aperture-ISO-Shutter in realtime (changes made to exposure)..... like it must become dark when I lower the aperture or increase shutter speed the screen goes dark and and vice versa??

Nope, that is not available. I checked all the settings I could find for liveview and there isn't any setting that changes it. That would be a super nice feature to have though.

There's no full-time preview, but activating the dof preview should get the lens to stop down. In M mode you'll also get a better preview of the actual exposure.

Yup, my mistake, I was trying it on other modes, but not manual which makes sense when I think about it. Sorry about that. It does definitely change when you make adjustments in manual mode.

it's nice when not using flash but with manual flash you shoot blind because live view can't adjust for the light that isn't there until you press the shutter release. I wish I could turn it off. Yet it's great for concerts when I need to shoot above the crowd.
