Hi Bryan,

I had come to the same conclusion as you did. What I didn't
understand is that the EVF turns off when I turn on the flashlight.
An I.R. proximity sensor alone should not have behaved that way.

Maybe light from the flashlight swamps out the reflected IR signal. There is some IR in the flashlight light, and the IR filters over the detector are just plastic and not prefect either.
