Yeah, it's really just something you'd have to try. It definitely takes some getting used to.
At first I wasn't sure I liked it. I felt less connected to my subject. But then I started to realize that as much as I felt less connected to the subject, I felt a lot more connected to the image I was about to take. No more switching lenses in a hurry, then realizing 10 shots later that they were all underexposed because you went from f/1.4 to f/4 because of the lens. WYSIWYG viewfinder. Love that.
Focus peaking in the EVF is frickin brilliant. What it looks like? Tiny dots just start appearing wherever there is sharp focus. At slower apertures, this can be hit or miss in terms of effectiveness, but it's VERY effective at wide apertures with sharp lenses. The 85Lii, for example, is shockingly easy to MF wide open.
