Thank you timboo. The only lens I have with a pull back focus ring is the 12-100 Pro. My 75-300 and 60mm macro do not.

@MJ224 ( sorry, I can only seem to copy one reply). Thank you. I understand what you say, but it doesn't seem to make sense on a camera of this calibre. When I stop focussing via the lens, the peaking should stay on if I am in manual and peaking is turned on. Otherwise, how can I then focus by moving my body/camera if something is moving slightly.

Thanks both for your replies.
