How accurate is focus peaking - OMD 1 mkii

Hi there,

In manual mode I use focus peaking to help get a sharp image.  I change the focus ring until I get a nice coverage of red across my frame.

One "in focus" though If however I change my aperture settings (say from f16 back to f4 on the 12-100)  the focus peaking indicator doesn't change.  Still all red.  You would expect less of the image/frame to be in focus (ie background) at f4 in this case - wouldn't you?

So am wondering how accurate focus peaking really is?

Any ideas?

Cheers
