Re: Manual focus lenses and EVF

I use MF lenses with my 5N all the time, what i love about it is that i can touch on the screen where i want to focus, it will zoon into that spot.. which makes it easy peasy to fine tune focus, esp. with off centre subjects.

With the EVF, you zoom into the centre and toggle your frame over to where you want to MF.

Does the EVF allow for more precise focusing compared to the screen?

Sometimes ago, I read that focus peaking worked better on the EVF vs the screen because it had a higher resolution. Is that correct? If yes, is there a big difference between the 2?
