Can you say at what f number focus peaking becomes effective. I have heard that there is no focus peaking below f2 because the contrast is too low. This would negate the advantage of having focus peaking for accurate focusing in lower light, where the ordinary rangefinder can become difficult.

Hi Wilson,

You are asking a very good question. I have been struggling to get any focus peaking with lenses wide open, but I have not done any formal tests. I had a quick look now with a few lenses under artificial diffused light and I could not get any meaningful focus peaking below f2.8...

Best, D
