There is button just below the "Fn" button on the A99 that directly activates the AF magnifier function, I also have an A6000 in which that funtion is automatic as you wish, but the peaking function doesn't work with magnified AF. I like the A99 way better, since in many cases I've found peaking easier to view than the magnified without it; though sometimes ( usually when the subject is too low lit ) peaking doesn't work well. Anyway, I hope they keep the A99's button in future generations, or introduce magnified view with peaking!
