    Every time I hit the play button it switches to the rear LCD instead of the viewfinder that I'm already using. I have to press the viewfinder button to switch back to the viewfinder, which is super annoying when you're trespassing in the middle of the night and need to stay discreet. Any way to fix this? Use the display button to turn off the display or will the preview button override this?

    When you have the viewfinder fitted, in the 'custom' menu, 5th screen, change 'play on LCD' to 'Off'. (This used to bother me too!)
