I have an E-M10 and E-M1 that I use often with manual only lenses (nothing as long as 500mm). The focus peaking is much improved on the E-M1 over E-M10 - multiple colors, multiple intensity, and easy to switch settings simply by pushing the info button. Don't know about newer models or Panasonic cameras. I sometimes use magnification, sometimes focus peaking depending on the scene. For critical focus on one point (not moving) I prefer magnification but focus peaking gets pretty close too.

Additional settings on the E-M10 mkII allow for more tweaking adjustment for peaking.
Maybe not the ultimate for the critical manual focus user but certainly adequate for my occasional MF use.
I have it set pretty close to what the original E-M10 provides though, so YMMV.
