focus peaking on m43 ... how good is it?

In this thread  Danny Young ("nzmacro") mentions that the peaking on his EM10 was no good (compared to NEX7) for his bird photography with the 500mm lens.
And in another thread Nick ("gardenersassistant") expresses his dislike of the peaking on his G9 (as compared to his A7ii) albeit for his macro work which might not be comparable to birding.

As I happen to have a fd500mm (for birding) in the mail but no camera yet to put it on ... I would like to know if peaking ability should be a deciding factor for my cam choice. -Is it useable for critical, precise focus in any of the m43 cams? (I won't put it on a Sony for several other reasons)

Thanks
K.
