    Does focus peaking and MF assist work with this lens on the EM1? Haven't been able to find anything nor any luck in setting it up.

    I don't have either, but since this is a manual focus lens and doesn't "talk" to the camera you may need to enable the peaking feature manually somehow.

    With a little more research I have established that you can focus peak with the Samyang and EM1. However, can't seem to make it work yet. I have PM'd a senior member who appears to have done so. I'll wait to see what he comes back with.

    I have focus peaking set to the fn1 button. But with the fish, the DOF is so huge the blinks are almost always there, although a little dimmer than normal. For the fish I've reverted to magnification focusing.

    I can't imagine why one would want to focus, let alone 'peak' with this lens.

    I use mine at f5.6, distance set just short of infinity.......Bingo, everything is in focus from about 9" to infinity.

    OR...am I missing something, please tell.
