Re: That's just the way EVF is...

The object of the EVF viewfinder is not to see exactly what the eye would see.

The object of the EVF viewfinder is to see what the sensor will reproduce.

To me the whole subject of "it doesn't blind me like broad daylight where the desert meets the ocean near Tangiers as the sun is directly overhead." is el toro poo poo.

What I want to see is what the sensor is going to record.  That's the reason it's there.  Go into manual mode, and if you cannot dial it back get thee a very low ISO and if not then a ND filter.

Unlike the big bright oh so wickedly orgasmic tingly feeling wonderful amazing a900 viewfinder, which is just like your eyes only better, the EVF merely is showing you what you will see later.  Not a guess at it.  No not like the OVF a900 which you have NO idea how the shot will turn out until after, the a99 will tell you RIGHT NOW.

Take some shots and SHARE...more fun that peeping at pixels at some crazy ISO!!!

Hey John,

One point you forgot regarding OVFs: If it gets too bright, you can always put sunglasses on!!

Ciao, Fabian
