Is the information in the viewfinder too dim to read?
Jun 28, 2013

In bright sunlight (and not so bright sunlight), I cannot read the information displayed in the viewfinder of my previous 5D and two 5D2s because it is too dim in the aforementioned conditions. I have been considering the purchase of a 5D3 or 6D so naturally this question has occurred to me. If the poll questions do not exactly fit your experience, please feel free to elaborate.
