    So I've only had my EM5 for a couple weeks and not gotten much chance to play with it but am running into some odd behavior that i was curious if normal. I set it to evf only mode so I can see the shot in the evf after I take it and I notice that whe on I take a shot there's a short blackout followed by what appears to be the replay but its not, followed half a sec later by the actual shot. It's almost like a freeze of the evf frame a bit before the image was taken. It's also blurry if there was motion. Very odd behavior and annoying to have both the blackout and a false shot before seeing the actual shot. I am used to my gh2 which just quickly shows the shot. Curious if others experience this behavior and if maybe it had to do with the combo of settings I had going.

    Mine just blacks out for a sec, then shows the shot, then goes back to the scene. I set the replay for 1 sec. Nothing in between the blackout and the replay of the shot.
