E-M5, Focus Peaking and IBIS!
In reply to YuriS, Jan 10, 2013



What you won't read here is that the E-M5 has something slightly better than focus peaking (except for video). There is a Key Line Art Filter that works the like focus peaking. It even works in the lowest of light when the NEX shows virtually no peaking due to low contrast. It will show in jpegs, so use it to shoot RAW, or assign a button (myset) to switch back to a different mode once the subject is in focus.

It works pefectly with the 5-axis IBIS on any lens. I have used it in near total darkness with the F/1.4 lens and IBIS.

here are some good examples...
