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.

I think the explanation is that the changed aperture setting doesn't actually go into effect until you take the shot. Before then, it is wide open as you fiddle with the focus.

Have you tried an old manual lens with an aperture ring?

Ok, thanks.  That makes some sense.  I have the Ronkinon 12mm with the aperture ring.  I can try that at home tonight.

Cheers
