Q: face detection autofocus on K3?

Hi,

I am considering the K3 and went through the manual to understand its capabilities. The manual states (p. 46) that there is a face detection autofocus mode (it is even the default in LV), but only in Live Mode.

Can somebody please explain what this means?

Does it mean that if I want to use face detection (which I would like to use), I have to switch to LV? And that face detection is not available when shooting with the optical viewfinder?

This is a problem for me as I would need my reading glasses for that. One huge benefit of using the OVF for me is its capability to do dioptric correction. This way I don't need to bother with glasses.

Thanks,

Mixx
