Is focus peaking like focus confirmation? On older Nikon and Olympus compacts, the area under focus was magnified and sharpened with a very nice distance meter under the image.

Not exactly Alex, on the Sony;s you set the camera for DMF, when you half press you get AF confirmation with Green Box...then turn the MF Ring on the lens and the image will magnify and dependant upon which color for Peaking you have chosen you will see a blanket or highlights with that color in the EVF or LCD on the subject then you can adjust the Peaking so you see the Peaking Color say in the subjects eyes...so you know that you have acquired focus on the eyes not the nose or hair or ears etc...it's a way to get accurate focus and is excellent for Close Ups and Macros where we tend to get back or front focus and then view the shot and missed the eyes of the subject...it even works with MF so it is VERY useful...
