Well, speaking of my experiences I'm usually relying almost all the time on AF. The longer the FL used the shallower the DOF and the more precise focussing needs to be for spot on focus on the subject (ideally its eye).

Especially for a subject other than plain flat, so with some depth, like the rounded surface of the feeder, I'm generally under the impression that focus peaking is a little vague on real peak focus. If focussing manually under such critical circumstances like full zoom / aperture full open I'd prefer high magnification in the EVF over peaking.
