    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to enable focus peaking all the time (not just when the focuser is being used)? I want this for when I'm talking macro photos to help nail the focus.

    bind a button to it, when you press the button it will toggle on and off.

    Good thinking.

    Thanks for that, it worked a treat!

    I'll have to program the Fn1 button for macro shots, I use my 17mm with a 10mm extension tube. It's not a big deal, I've got a spare program memory I can assign to "macro" duties. I think that I will assign the lens function button for the 12-40 to peaking, at the moment it's assigned to DoF preview which I very rarely use. For that matter I don't really use AEL very often...
