NEX-5R's LCD screen does not turn brighter under the sun like other NEXes
Feb 4, 2013

I wonder if any noticed this, but I had a NEX-5N and NEX-7 prior to owning the NEX-5R, and a huge reason I gave up on the EVF was that I didn't need it under bright sunlight, as the NEX-7's LCD screen would automatically turn brighter (same as NEX-5N). But on the NEX-5R, I must manually turn the LCD screen to "sunny weather" on the set up menu in order for it to be bright. It's not painful to do so, but I wonder why they took out this rather convenient function? Or is there a way for it to turn on automatically?
