    Hi All. I brought my E-P2 (w/vivitar 28mm f2 lens) and attempted to take some pics at my desk. I noticed some dark horizontal sections spanning accross the LCD screen and also in the vf. Looked a lot like when you try to videotaping a TV screen. I have T12 fluorescent lights. I was in auto white balance mode.

    Does anyone know the frame rate of the LCD and VF? I'm thinking the vf and lcd might be scanning/refreshing at a rate that is out of phase with the flourescent bulb. To the naked eye the bulb doesnt appear to be flickering.

    Does anyone think it could be some type of EMI from the lamp ballasts?

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks -EB
