Manual focus on A7RII

I am seriously considering getting the A7RII.  However, I am still in the research phase right now.  In my research, I am seeing a lot of people that are using MF lenses.  Now, I am not sure if it is my ability, or maybe my older eyes, but I am not able to manually focus at all with my 5DIII, or my M3 (even with focus peaking turned on).

My question is this...  Is there something about the A7RII that makes manual focusing easier?  What is everybody's opinion on this?  If I were to get this camera (which I probably will), I would want to make sure I would be able to get use out of a $1000 or higher priced MF lens, before I bought it.

Thanks
