I've been using my A series lenses and I find manual focusing a joy now.
I would have never thought that, but it's exactly like this. The bigger viewfinder on the one hand does an awesome job in making focusing easier and on the other hand I have the impression that the AF module and confirmation (red-indicator) are more accurate than on my K5II. My A-Lenses are a joy to use now!

set the diopter adjustment on the VF to match your eyesight?
FYI: to do this, set your lens to infinity focus on a distant object, move the diopter to the point where things appear to be sharpest for your eyesight.
