    Hi Everyone,

    When using my M Zuiko 14-42mm on my E-P2 I notice that the brightness (during composition) on the LCD and EVF is way too bright even though the meter says that it is correctly exposed. I have to underexpose 1.5 stops to get the EVF and LCD to look right. Then when reviewing the image, the image is underexposed as the meter suggested.

    Here's the catch. This only happens when I'm shooting full manual (M mode) and only with this lens. If shooting shutter or aperture priority the brightness seems to adjust accordingly.

    I've already checked the EVF and LCD brightness settings and the exposure shift settings and gradation settings.

    Lens firmware v1.1, Camera firmware v1.1

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks -EB
