Default Pentax K5 LV Focusing

Does anyone know if there's an option to turn off the 'zoom in' feature when focusing in LV so that the viewed image stays normal size - I've searched through the menu/manual to see if there ar any settings.

I'm not quite sure what you've asking. I know mine will zoom in real quick, then once focused, go to normal. Is yours not going to normal after focusing?

Yes, it does that, BUT I really don't like the way it works as it doesn't do anything & would prefer to able to turn it off.

It lets you see that the focus point is in focus, several times on my Kr it has zoomed in and not focus correctly, I was able to see the miss-focus

Understand why, but can it be turned off?
