Focusing through the EVF without magnification or focus peaking is quite accurate and sufficient at medium or smaller apertures.

Lucky you. Results i get this way are mediocre to say the least.

Sounds quite similar to my experience with a 1972 Summilux 35mm f/1.4 at lens openings between f/2.8 and f/5.6. Wider open than that, and for more precise critical focus, I use magnification. The old 'Lux wide open and down to f/2 has a lovely touch of softness that is kinda like fitting a Zeiss Softar I filter: detailing within a gentle sharpness falloff outside the edges, which makes it hard to focus accurately at those apertures without magnification (but produces lovely results!).

Question: Will focus peaking on the CL work with this lens?

Works well for me with the ZM. 🙂
