focus peaking

I saw a post in dpreview talking about the focus peaking feature. Just want to know whether it works in manual focus mode only? Or in work the same in auto-focus mode + quick shift?

On the K-01, when enabled in the Menu, Focus Peaking works fully in manual focus, auto focus and quick shift. Using FP with Quick Shift is a delight. It is helpful in AF to confirm the camera selected the focus point you wanted - so you can touch up focus with QS as necessary.

Focus Peaking even works in a limited fashion in Movie Mode..

really thx. I think it's a big plus to allow FP with quick shift.

At wide apertures I have watched the zone of focus move from a petal to the pistil and back to the petal on a hibiscus blossom.
