I have found it reasonably accurate if you assume the sharpest focus will be between 1/3 to 1/2 of the way into the highlighted area. Easy to check: pick a spot in the scene, manual focus on it with focus peaking, then use enlarged live view to see where the sharpest point is vs. the highlighted band.

It does show depth of focus vs. aperture if you use the depth of field preview button on the front of the camera. Each user will have to decide if that is useful for their purposes.

Great, thanks Bob.  I didn't know that so will try that later in the day.

Appreciate the help.
