Re: Auto EVF / E-M5III question...

I just tested this with mine and I can confirm the EVF does shut off when you disengage the proximity sensor. I have the screen folded shut and verified off (there is the tiniest gap due to a screen protector, but I can confirm it shuts off when folded shut), then tested the EVF switch. I disabled the eco/quick sleep mode to make sure this was actually actuating and not due to eco/quick sleep kicking in. I can indeed see the EVF turn on when i block the proximity sensor, and off when I unblock it. I turned off the camera with EVF "off" and did not see a shift in light leading me to believe the EVF does indeed full turn off when have rear LCD closed, and your face is not close to the EVF.
