Hello, I find this somewhat infuriating and deceiving. I can't say that I'm happy about it. My new E-PM2 has a "live guide" feature, which will show you an accurate "live view" of what the final image will look like on the LCD screen. Now this is only available in "iAuto" mode, which I don't really use. I'm more of a P/S/A/M guy. I thought that the LCD would, naturally, show a preview of what the image will look like in M mode, that is, if you under expose your image (close the aperture, step down the shutter speed), then you would see a darker preview on the LCD. But no, the screen shows nothing like what the final image will look like. If you have spot metering on (like I do), it will darken and lighten like crazy, depending on where your central spot is, regardless of your aperture/shutter/iso settings. The only way to see what the photo will look like is to take a photo and look at the result. Did I miss something? Is there a way to have the back LCD act as a live preview in M mode (and P/A/S mode, please!)? If not, then, I am sorry, but this is crap (well, not too bad, but still...). Yet I hope that I missed some option somewhere (although I doubt it) - I'd love to hear from others with similar experiences or tips (maybe with other cameras... is this a common thing?) - not to turn this into a ranting fest, but to share experiences and say things like they are.
