OVF shooting info unreadable using legacy lenses
Apr 28, 2012

I find that the shooting information in the OVF, such as frame lines, shutter speed, exposure compensation etc, are unreadable with Leica M lenses attached (via Kipon adapter) and when the subject matter is remotely bright.

With the Fuji 35mm lens attached I can see that the camera seems to be changing the brightness and/or contrast of these details in the display as you direct it between dark and bright subjects so it's very visible.

As this doesn't happen with the legacy lenses I guess the lens must play a part.

The workaround is to just use the EVF of course. I also wonder if the future Fuji M adapter will correct this????

Has anyone else found the same problem?

Did you find a solution other than just using the EVF?
