White noise on Liveview screen Pentax K1

Hi Guys,

I have received my new Pentax K1 yesterday and when I was trying to use liveview I have found quite a bit of white noise showing on the screen, either in low light or norman light condition.although it doen not affect focusing but I just found it very annoying. May I ask if this is normal or a screen failure?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like focus peaking. It's a good idea to disable it if you're not focusing manually.
