I agree with the former comments on setting up for focus peaking but will it work for old manual lenses attached via an adapter with no electrical connection? Focus peaking only gets displayed when the focus ring is twisted and if there is no signal from the lens surely it won't get activated.

On my GX7 focus peaking shows whenever it is on, not just when you turn the focus ring. I use it on my voightlander all the time without an electrical connection.
