I'd like Canon to tweak the DoF preview a bit, it needs a noticable bit of time to ramp up the exposure. I don't know if it's just sloppy coding, since the the scene has been metered already and the camera knows it's going from f/2.8 to f/11 or if it's the amplifier hardware being to slow.I really disliked focus peaking with my Leica M 240, poorly implemented with the accessory EVF.
So, I was quite skeptical when I bought my second EOS R , the first one having been replaced after a week with the 5 D IV, reason was the absence of dual SD slot (I stupidly panicked before an important trip!).
Conclusion: the R's focus peaking is absolutely great with vintage lenses, the magnifying feature perfect, and, last not least, the USABLE DOF preview with manual lenses. Fantastic for macro shots !
