    Just received my new R5. I plan on using my Lensbabies lenses on this camera. I have heard alot about " focus peaking" I was just wondering, can you see the focus peaking assist in the viewfinder or is it just on the LCD screen? thanks

    i have the M50 and i can see the focus peaking in the evf so i cant see any reason why they would have changed it for the higher end cameras as its a popular aid
    i find the x5 and x10 magnification of the image a better focus aid though

    i use both fully connected lenses ie ef and efm also non connected like the vintage lenses with no electrics and the focus peaking works fine with them as its a camera thing rather than a need for lens feed back

    hopefully one of our R5 users can confirm this?
