One reason for some disappointment after all: No focus peaking w/ legacy lenses

Years ago when Oly put a focus indication LED in some Fourthirds models, we were disappointed to find that it was disabled for non-system lenses (that is: those without Fourthirds compatible electrical contacts).

Well, now we have focus peaking (i.e. in-focus areas are shown blinking, a great focussing tool especially with manual lenses), but again this has been disabled for non-system lenses, where it would be the most useful!
