I just got a M42 - NX adapter and put on my Super Takumar 50mm 1.4. Manual focus assist and focus peaking both do not work. MF assist is set to 5x and focus peaking is High Red. Is that normal or am I missing a something? I'm guessing then that the MF assist needs electronic communication between body and lens. But shouldn't focus peaking still work?

Did you push the OK button? I don't have an NX500 but this was required to activate peaking when using adapted lenses on similar models.

Pressing 'OK' on my NX300 doesn't work for MF assist - was working on my previously owned NX3000 tho - any ideas?
