Exposure seems really slow to adjust - has anyone else noticed this? I am renting this camera and trying it out for digiscoping. Yesterday was my first day with it and I had the Canon EF 40mm on the camera, and they were mounted on a Swarovski STX 85 scope; I was shooting in manual focus. My biggest challenge was that I was shooting white birds on a dark background, and with the zebras set to 100% the camera was very slow to adjust to changes in exposure - panning across the dark water and then getting the white bird in the viewfinder. At first when I got the bird in the frame, it would have zebras covering it, to the point I couldn't see the bird, and then they would slowly (maybe over 1 1/2 sec) fade out and the camera would adjust. This was also visible in the histogram. Here is a sample image: https://www.flickr.com/photos/focused-on-birds/23032231414/in/dateposted-friend/
