    Is there a way to engage focus peaking when working with an adapted manual lens on a E-M1? Im using the zoom mapped to Fn2 which works well but I cant get the peaking option to engage. Is this possible on a fully manual adapted lens?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yes, I have the bottom button on the front of the em1 (next to the lens) set to focus peaking. Works great with all my lenses, even my old pentax 35mm f2

    I assigned focus peaking to the button next to the lens mount (actually both buttons :smile: )
