    When using focus peaking, can it be zoomed in a bit more (say 5x or 7x), rather than seeing the whole image...sort of like how manual focus assists zooms in? Can it do that?

    You can set manual focus assist to automatically turn on focus peaking, but I do not believe you can assign a function button to focus peaking and have it zoom in when pressed (would be a nice feature)

    anyone else? Can focus peaking only be done at the regular view, not zoomed in?

    If you have Magnify= ON and Peaking=ON, you will get a zoomed in image that shows peaking (at all zoom levels). I can confirm that, but I have not tested all other combinations.

    If you are in manual focus mode (with Magnify=off and peaking=on in settings). I have focus peaking and magnify assigned to the 2 buttons on the front and if press the magnify button, I get the zoomed view and can toggle peaking on/off with the other button.

    Yes, I also use the 2 button method with my manual lenses.

    Works Ok but it would not hurt if someone would post a 1-button method ...
