I use yellow a lot with my A7r. I just tried red and it seems fine as well. Blue perhaps for portraits as pointed out for a contrast against skin.

Yellow stands out in all situations - not sure what situation the other poster is referring to. At least not with Sony's implementation.

One minor issue with the Sony system is if set to high it can light up perhaps a bit too much of the scene (although critical focus areas are a deeper colour) and in a magnified view it becomes a bit weak.

The split view sounds very good though. How would you rate the manual focusing ability so far under different circumstances - a fast lens wide open, stopped down, a long lens?
