After a week with the XE-1, I am finding the EVF almost impossible to work with. It takes just way too long to adjust to different light conditions. Not sure how anyone can deal with this. It literally takes almost a second or so if I point the camera towards a bright sunlit area after it has been looking towards a shaded one.

I tried an XPRO-1 last summer (returned it for various reasons) but mainly used the OVF. I don't remember anything like this.

Is anyone else having this problem or do I maybe have a defective camera?

Does this happen when viewing the live view on the rear LCD as well? or only through the EVF?

I know my Nex 5n buffers the metering when I quickly change from a bright object, like my laptop monitor, to the dark wall next to it... and it does take a while for it to find the right metering, but I assume that the buffering is required so that it doesnt quickly flicker with every minute exposure change in the scene?
