100% agree. In ideal lighting with just the right subject matter and some time to fiddle (or maybe with a lot more practice), split image will be a killer feature. Focus peaking seems to work in a wider variety of circumstances and I prefer it (so far, anyway). Also agree with others that it might be nice to be able to switch colors for even better contrast.I found the split image somewhat difficult to use, because the "gray" area is very faint. There is not enough contrast. I definitely prefer the focus peaking.
