I've assigned image preview to the DoF button on my A77, it gives me the exact DRO enhanced effect that is in the final image, in any contrasty scene, it boost the shadows no end, and looks almost identica to the final image.. something that I see EVF critiquers complaining about, but it seems not too many people know about it..

Are you saying that image preview assigned to the DOF button is more accurate than just looking through the EVF? I'll have to try it out. I usually half push the shutter release which seems to do the same thing but I'll try your method to see if it's better.

Absolutely, it seems to add DRO etc.. In a high contrast scene where DRO would make a large difference, it's so close to the final exposure, it surprised me the first time I tried it.
