No Eyepiece shutter in SLTs, right?
I'm mulling over how my incoming (?soon?) A99 will change my shooting workflow.
One of the things I have to remind myself on my A900 or KM5D for tripod & remote shutter operation was to close the eyepiece shutter via its small lever. (Otherwise, since your face isn't up to the eyepiece, light can enter in via the eyepiece and mess up your exposure metering.)
In theory, since the eyepiece just gives you a way to view the EVF, with no light path to the exposure meters, this is no longer an issue.
Is this true in reality? If so, this is a nice advantage over the OVF for landscape work - one less thing to have to worry about.
