Also I found using the focus peaking that it wasn't good enough for really critical focus, and with a lens with such a shallow DOF as the 85 wide open then you might want to check that by using the 10x magnification with peaking turned off.


Nick I have come to the same conclusion, especially using my FD 500mm 4.5L Tele. at MFD and wide open the DOF is too shallow to use peaking with any consistency.

All of my pictures taken with various macro and portrait length MF lenses are sharp where I want them using the  3x or 10X magnification method. make for somewhat slow photography, but that is OK with me. I am in no rush.
