X-e1 manual focus nikon glass only

I am thinking about buying a new xe1 and using my nikon lenses with it. For some strange reason i have been enjoying my old film cameras again and would like to use my ais glass with a digital camera. I shoot mostly scenics and portraits. No toddlers to chase around so super fast auto focus is not needed. I have a dslr for that. Anyway does the xe1 have focus peaking or some other aid for focusing old glass ? Also i read that the evf is really laggy. Will that be an issue. I love the images this camera produces and the small size.
