With the X-Pro 2 I mostly use the OVF and MF. The Electronic Range Finder (FUJIFILM's terminology) with focus peaking is a useful focusing aid in MF mode (lens collar or back-button AF). The focus peaking window displays a small region corresponding to the actual focus region. Now the peaking is region specific. With just a quick glance I can see if the region is where I want it to be and if it is in focus.

I suspect this would be equally useful in EVF mode. But I don't use MF with the EVF, so I can't comment.
Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.
