Yes, you do need to pull focus to and fro and shoot quite a few images to be sure youíve got some that are critically sharp, but I do find it easier with peaking than without.
    Iím not so sure about using it with shorter focal lengths, though.
    Maybe Focus Bracketing might be useful in those situations.

      I set up focus peaking on my EM1-2 but instead of white showing focus, mine shows red. How can I change it to white?

          I have mine set on red too, at High Intensity as well as Brightness Adj (at this point) which brightens the display during MF.
