I just checked, after the FW update, and both 5N and 7 behave the same:

in MF mode, touching the dial ring brings up the zoom focus window. You do not have to touch the shutter button, the zoom stays up, and you can click on the x2 zoom.

in DMF mode, pressing the shutter half-way, then touching the dial ring brings up the zoom focus window. You have to keep pressing the shutter button, or you will loose the focus point. After time-out, the view resorts back to full window view. To click on the x2 button, you have to keep pressing the shutter button halfway, a bit awkward.

I tend not to use MF because I use auto ISO a lot. So I use the DMF option but I've become used to it. I compose/frame first, then magnify, focus, then shoot. I've learned not to trust peaking so much so this method is preferable with a normal or telephoto lens. Very wide is much more forgiving.
