Set the EV back a few Clicks - To YOUR Tastes / That will often remove the Excessively Bright & Washed Out Look )

Set Your Image Display 1.5 Sec ( Feedback )
Monitor Sunlight Mode = OFF
EVF/LCD Mode = 60 fps ( Very Important )
Power Management = High Performance = ON

You can Turn "Focus Peaking" OFF - But You'd Loose it's Benefits ( Finely Detailed Sharpness Viewing ) It's a Trade-Off really. . .

Very Important is to Learn to Use the AE/AF Button when in Manual Focus Mode - This will Auto Focus the Scene and THEN Allow you to Use Your Manual Focus Ring to Tweak the Focus to Your Needs.

Your frustration would have been SOLVED by using Manual Focus / Along with the AE/AF Button. . .

Yep... already done the EV thing.

Will try the EVF/LCD mode and Power Management settings you suggest... thanks.

I did discover (after I got home), that I could leave focus peaking on but turn off that focus assist zoom thing.  That will be a big help.

I did use the AE/AF button with manual focus.  It was very handy, indeed.  Still, with the annoying focus assist zoom feature and the ease at which I accidently touched the manual focus ring, I was having a heck of a time.  Got some things to try now though, which is good.

Thanks, Orion
