Legacy Lens & Focus peaking.

Do`s focus peaking work with legacy lenses on the Em-1. If so how do you enable it. I have focus peaking set for manual focus but cant seem to get it to work with a legacy lens.

Re: Legacy Lens & Focus peaking.

You have to program focus peaking onto one of the programmable buttons and then press it when you want it. The camera does not know when you rotate the focus ring so can't do it automatically.
