??? to the focus peak of A57

For work in the macro range, the focus peak function would be one feature for me to upgrade (from an A55). However, after investigating on a A57 display model, that function still looks good to me but not as good as it sounded to begin with, since the function shows only the center of the focus / sharpness, and does not relate at all to the DOF. When different f-stops are applied, the display of the peaking area remains unchanged, which is expected since the diaphragm does not change unless the DOF button is activated. However, activation of the DOF button cancels out the peak function. Did I get that right?
