Im gonna shoot, soon on the Panasonic AF100.
I wondered if it has the Peaking option like the Sony EX-1, the shows you graphically when u are in focus?
I did not find it in the manual, but I heard it had an focus Assistent function in the display? I really need that, since the lenses I'm shooting with do not work with autofocus button. Thanx.

Yep, there is a peaking mode (called focus assist in the user button menus), though it has no coarse adjustment. On or Off are the choices. The AF !00 also has an EVF Detail mode that is useful sometimes in conjunction with FA, it's a button next to the audio select buttons where the LCD folds away.

Thanx. Is that peaking mode then comparable to the EX1, meaning you see coloured lines around the subjects in focus?

Yes there is, but as I mentioned, there is no coarse control like on an EX 3 or such.
Set it to one of your "easy to get to" user buttons so you can toggle it on and off at will. It does get in the way sometimes.
