What's manual focusing like with the NX10?

Something strange happened and I found myself having ordered an NX10 with the 30mm pancake. I never intended to do that and was mainly planning to get a NEX some day. But while the NX sensors are definitely behind Sony's, the lenses seem small and good. And when I noticed a bargain (provided it's not a scam) for that kit, I recently ordered it to be my compact travel "P&S" camera. I figured that it's not that much bigger than a P&S, but is leagues above in IQ. For now, I have no plans of buying any other lenses or accessories for the camera, but that depends naturally on where Samsung is taking the NX camera line.

But this leads us to my question. Since I was planning to use some M42 Takumars on my NEX camera, how is the manual focusing and exposure metering on an NX? No focus peaking I believe and only 2 x zooming, right? So not very handy I suppose? But is the metering accurate?
