Canon has published a patent for focus peaking, a feature some feel has been omitted from Canon DSLRs in live view mode. You can get focus peaking in a Canon DSLRs if you use magic lantern.

Patent Publication No. 2016-158106 (Google Translated)

  • Published 2016.9.1
  • Filing date 2015.2.24
  • To get the distance information of the object
  • To generate a waveform image showing the degree of focusing of the object based on the high-frequency component
  • To vary the color of the waveform

Wouldn't it be nice if this could be added to the EOS 5D Mark IV via firmware?
