As I said, in full bright light the aperture stays almost closed, normally. It's easy to to check. watch the lens from the front while pointed to the bright scene then half press the shutter release - it goes shortly wide open (f1.4) to AF then it closes back. This takes longer time than in low/decent light when aperture stays wide open most of the time.

It is caused by the permanent live preview of the scene...damn, we should be able to disable this when using OVF. I heard it can be done on other cameras,

regards
