Focus Peaking with AF on SAM and Sigma HSM

Just learned something new...on my A77

While you can't MF the lens until you flip the switch on the lens.

If you have the MF button set to MF. When you press it you get focus peaking so you can check your auto focus etc.

Probably would be more useful in close up shots..

What I wish Sony did was simulate DMF with SSM lenses so focus peaking would turn on when the AF was locked and you wanted to tweak the focus manually.
