Focus peaking

Hi all, getting to know the EM5mk2 controls as other Olympus cameras is for my part a love hate relationship? Does anyone know an easy way to set peaking focusing I have checked the manual but cannot find how it's done? Online search has revealed go to the art filter 11 and set that to 2 and set the camera to raw+JPEG so you get the origanal raw and the art photo in JPEG. But when viewing to take the shot only the art filter is showing in the viewfinder, which is weird when doing macro.
Please help kind regards mike

MENU "Gear A" [MF Assist]

You can also assign it to a button to easily switch it on and off

Re: Focus peaking

For macro I switch the focus peaking on but turn off the magnification for handheld work as you cant compose an image in magnified mode.

Which lens are you using?
As once you switch it on (E-M1) it automatically start when you use MF with Zuiko 4/3 and m4/3 lenses but does not with my Sigma 105 which I assigned it to the Fn2 button for.

hi Alf, I am using the 60mm macro ( oly) however although not a macro the 40-150pro does a good close up job Foord Dragonflies.
