And In Fact....

And in fact the beauty of the EVF is that it specifically doesn't give you the "absolute luminance" of a scene. Those with OVF's will go on for years taking blue tint pictures because they forgot to reset their WB, or wondering whether to wick the exposure comp. up/down, or guessing what effect one of the Scene Modes might have, but those days are gone for Sony users.

The current generation of EVF needs to be improved of course, but I'm so done with absolute luminance.
