I'm hoping that they do and that the processor in the camera is up to the task.

I doubt it's a limitation on the sensor - if the camera can find high contrast edges in the process of focusing, it should also be able to highlight these areas of highest contrast; this is likely image processor related.

For those that don't know, the Nex series cameras did not have focus peaking originally. I was an early adopter and picked up a nex5 on the week of release and like many who lamented the lack of quality fast glass; started using manual focus legacy lenses.  During that time there were many voices asking for focus peaking and it took over a year for Sony to add it in a firmware update.
