Indeed, much better actually.

But I'm a bit disappointed with how peeking seems to work. It seems to detect only vertical lines like sony does,  I was hoping it worked like fuji or pentax and detect also horizontal lines.

On top of that, at least from what I've read elsewhere, it only has an on/off setting with no adjustments of level or color.

And...is it me or in this video peaking is showing stronger when the image is already out of focus?

Yep....not very conclusive.

Probably be far more useful if the test involved the camera being tripod mounted {not hand-held.....with obvious shakes}, and with an MF lens being slowly focused 'to & thro' throughout its range....so the peaking accuracy {or not}  is clear, concise....and obvious.

I'm starting to suspect my hopes may be dashed.....regarding the g6's peaking.

Early days though.
