    I just received an E-P5 and figured out how to turn on focus peaking with adapted lenses (I had to assign it to a button).

    I have been having more and more trouble using adapted lenses. I think they are in focus in the field and then I get home and find crap for photos. I seem to be getting worse at this. Perhaps my eyes are just getting worse.

    Anyway, I have been tempted to just sell all of my old glass and give up.

    I just came in from a walk around the yard using the EP-5 with focus peaking and my OM 50. Wow. I could focus very quickly. You can basically see the highlights of the focus plane moving back and forth across your subject as you adjust the ring. I am back in business with legacy glass!!!

    Between the focus peaking and the IBIS which steadies the image in the view finder for you, the E-P5 has made legacy glass a great option for the manual focus challenged such as myself.

    I took one shot and was positive I had the face in focus. OM 50mm at f2.8
