    Hi E-M5 owners,

    I can't seem to get my E-M5 to do image playback in the viewfinder, unless I set viewfinder auto switching to off.. Any pointers?


    P.S. By image playback I mean, the mode you enter when you press the "play" button on the back of the camera - not the instant image review after taking a shot.

    I'd like to bump this, as I'd like to know this as well. With my Gh2, I far prefer to review captured images in the EVF, for multiple reasons. You see a much more detailed view, and I'd be reliant on reading glasses to really see much in the rear screen.

    Anybody figure out if it's possible to see image playback in the EVH while keeping the EVF auto-switching on?
