Iím not so sure about using it with shorter focal lengths, though.
Maybe Focus Bracketing might be useful in those situations.

Re: Manual lenses and focus peaking

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.
