I have a GH2 and GX7. I find that focus peaking is a good, rough aide for focus, but using an EVF with magnified view, is the best way to nail it.

Jeff: Do you focus at the shooting aperture, or focus wide open then stop down and shoot?

Set the aperture and focus.

I shoot in M mode and have Constant Preview activated. That way I pretty much see the exposure I'll be getting. With the GX7, I sometimes need to activate magnified to see the actual exposure. It seems to work a little different from the GH2
