Nothing, no sign of peakingĀ 

Having done Software QA for a long time ago I started systematically by changing settings that had nothing to do with PeakingĀ  The technique know as "what the hell is the QA guy doing" or "press any key"

Two things to consider:

When you are not able to select the strength of the peaking/contrast you do not get ANY peaking. So how to get there ?

I did swap RAW to SF once and the menue item was suddenly selectable and with the actication of the magnifier on OK you as well get the contrast peaking !

So yes: it work but I would ask the developer to check his code and apply patch !!!!

Cheers, Tjobbe

I would start a new thread with this "NX300 Focus Peaking Bug" or something and mention what you do to fix it, and maybe developer will see it too

Also, could it be that you have to be in a JPEG mode (maybe try RAW+) to get focus peaking?  This wouldn't make sense, as I would guess it uses the video stream, but just checking.
