Q: D[EllipticK[k],k] ?

I need to know if it's possible to obtain the derivative of the
complete elliptic integral given by EllipticK[k], where k is some
parameter.  I've tried
   D[EllipticK[k], k]
with the output result
and when I try
   N[%] /. x->0.5
I get

How can I obtain the numerical answer this derivative?

Thanks in advance.
