It is in fact possible, but you have to change the focusing screen. I was also looking at one bit decided not to buy one yet. Here is a link to one one the german ricoh store:

Einstellscheibe ML-60

It does not state that it is compatible with the k3II but i read somewhere that it is compatible. You can research it if it is what you are looking for

I was disappointed to find that the list of accessories included in earlier models handbooks is missing from the K3-II book. As mentioned, the AF Divided Matte ML-60 for the K7 and K5 series also fits the K3 series.
I have this screen fitted to my K5 and will be swapping it with my K3-II's one sometime.

I have just this minute swopped the standard MF-60 in the K3-II with the ML-60 in the K5. Everything is hunky dory.
