XT2, Manual Focus Question

This is a question about using the XT2 and an auto focus lens in manual mode. [Have tried it with the 1855 and the 1650]

I also have an XT10 and when I switch to manual focus it goes like this:

Focus peaking is visible once the camera is switched on and focus is adjustable [with peaking] via focus ring.....all as you would expect.

However with the XT2 [latest firmware] it goes like this with manual focus switched on:

Turn the camera on...no focus peaking.

Half-press the shutter and normal auto focus kicks in with with green square and beep confirmation.

If I keep the shutter half pressed and turn the focus ring, only then does focus peaking show and manual adjustment can be made.

This is pretty convoluted and to my mind fairly useless.

The obvious question is....is there something in the menu settings that can adjust this?

Or is it just a quirk of the XT2 system?

Or a possible problem with my camera?

Any help much appreciated!
