but in the old days, they never had focus peaking.

I used my eyes to do the focus peaking. I could look at the scene in my viewfinder and see what was or wasn't in focus.

so. why can't you just focus manually, the EVF is good enough

Sorry, but it really isn't, at least for me.

and it has

magnification to help you focus better

I've tried the magnification, and it just drives me crazy to have the scene jumping in and out like that.

I should add that my focus problems are rare, and I've never even seen focus peaking, let alone used it, but from its description, it sounds like a very useful benefit.
