Focus Peaking

Can someone tell me what focus peaking is and how to use it. Is it combined with live view? Is it a function of the camera? I just bought a Rokinon 14mm and I read members using liveview and focus peaking with it.

Bought one on Cyber Monday as well, haven't received it yet. I am in Canada. Look forward to using it for Astrophotography. Have a 12-24mm for general wide angle.

Any chance they will make this available in a Pentax mount? Here's hoping.

I wear glasses but take them off when shooting. I have the diaopter set to max but would still like more clarity if possible. I am considering purchasing a Pentax magnifier for my K3. Has anyone used one and what are your views both positive or negative. I think they are worth about $26.00. There appear to be other brands available for Pentax mount.

Best fast standard zoom lens for astrophotography

Does the K70 have Astro Tracer? If not, you won't get pinpoint stars. You can buy or make a platform with tracer to resolve this problem. My recommendation is the Samyang 16mm F1.8. Beautiful wide angle lens. Good for landscapes and architecture as well.

Thanks a lot gang for the great info. I am trying to decide whether to upgrade to LR 6.5 FROM 5.7. I have never used LR before. Bought 5.7 two years ago but never used it. Running a K3.

Samyang 14 vs Pentax 15??

Have you considered the new Samyang 16mm F1.8? If you are sticking to an ASP-C sensor, and often shoot in low light this could be a viable option. I think it is selling for about $40.00 more than the 14mm new.

Can you not use back button focus when in live view? Is there something I have to do in the settings to make it work?

Further to Adams suggestion I have tried to access the "detailed information screen" in playback. Currently I only show the histogram. The manual shows a very detailed information screen for still pictures (Page 13). How do I get that screen? Thanks for your assistance.

Focal Length

How can I see the focus length the camera is using? The reason I ask is that I am using an older Tokina prime lens and the option in the menu (input focal length) is not highlighted. I think it shows up in the edif data but that entails processing a picture. (I think my assumption is correct)

Does the camera not show the focal length of the lens currently attached to the camera?

Anyone used this lens for Astrophotography? I am trying to decide to use it or buy a Rokinon 14 or 16mm lens. If I don't have to invest an additional $300.00+ in another lens I won't.

My apologies. I meant K3. I don't know how much difference that makes. Once again sorry for my stupidity in typing.
