The top display turns off when the camera is turned off. Why would you want it to continue to be on? Would just drain power unnecessarily. (Surprised Nikon rep didn't know this.)

It stays on with the GFX 50S. Doesn't seem to drain the battery more than MILCs with no top display.

Maybe the GFX 50S uses a different technology--a la e-ink? My understanding is that the top display on the Zs is OLED, and unless I'm missing something, OLED consumes power whenever it's on.

Edit: Just checked and it looks like the GFX 50S does indeed use e-ink for the top display.
