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

I keep peaking active all the time with my G80's, as a general ball-park reference, but tend to use magnification for critical focusing with telephotos.

My telephotos are 300mm and 400mm, plus I occasionally use my Nikon tc-16a with them....so 640mm max.

I do have a custom mode set up for manual focus bif-video, with the VF in monochrome, which does make peaking more visible, but as I only shoot video now, I am unable to increase the peaking visibility further, by boosting sharpness/contrast etc in-camera {which can be done if shooting 'raw' stills}….as I can't remove the excessive sharpening/contrast in post....with video.
