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!

They have got only half of it... Without electric contacts the body of course does not know if you are turning focusing ring or not. However peaking can be engaged via any of configurable buttons. Now the EVF shows peaking and when you press shutter button half way it disappers.
