Live view on K-x

Just curious -- does the live view allow you to magnify the image properly on the K-x? The K20D always bugged me with its lower res image; just made it jaggy and pixelated when zooming in, so not really useful.

Yes, the live view (LV) does let you magnify the live image up to 6x. The image quality is good - no jaggies. It's very handy for precision focussing.

You can also zoom in up to 16x on images when reviewing stored pix, of course, also with good results.

It would be nice if the display was 900k dots instead of 230k dots, of course, but it's still good.
