I picked up a refurb from Cameta and upon arrival the shutter fired as soon as you turned on the power button, I called them and they said to return for replacement. The replacement arrived and it does the same thing, fires when the power is turned on. Is this what it is supposed to do? The camera works fine otherwise, pics are great. The other thing is LCD screen , it has a very crappy image , washed out and not much contrast. The first camera was the same way. Its not as clean and crisp as a 179 dollar aim and shoot. I use the VF2 anyway , did the EPL3 just come with a crappy monitor?
