2. I have a circular polarizer now. When I rotate it, I find it hard to see the difference in my EVF. I know about being 90 degrees to the sun. It was extremely easy to see the difference when I turned my linear polarizer on my old Olympus gear.


I'm not sure about the rest, but I think this has to do with the EVF showing the current exposure all the time!  I mean when you use an optical viewfinder and rotate the front element of the circular polarizer, you will see directly the influence of the filter in your viewfinder: it will go darker as you approach maximum effect and will be lighter at minimum.  While the EVF is by default setup to show the current exposure taking into account aperture, shutter speed and in this occasion the filter.
