K3 Focus Peaking while recording

The whole idea of focus peaking is to ensure that the image/video is in focus. Is it possible to leave focus peaking ON once the record button is pressed so that focus adjustments can be correctly made while panning/zooming?

No, unfortunately focus peaking does not work during recording of video. It only works while it is idle - as soon as recording starts the focus peaking stops.

One hopes that some future firmware update will fix this.

Unfortunately not- it's probably a CPU limitation. Hopefully future models will have it!
