Pentax Q Focus assist

Hi,

Focus assist work when manual focusing on the kit 02 lens, but when I install any K mount with the Fotodiox adapter, it does not magnify the image while focusing.
Anybody having the same issue?

Thanks

I think you may need to have the genuine adapter, but I'm not 100% sure.

Check page 93 of the Q Manual. I had this happened and it drove crazy til I figured it out.

I didn't know it kicked in when turning the focus ring - I'll have to see if it works. But, I am used to just hitting the 'OK' button.

Also, you can turn the magnification off with a half press of the shutter button.
