I just got into m43 with Olympus' latest Trade In offer. Picked up a E1Mkii and 12-100/4 kit last Friday. I've been spending a fair amount of time learning about all its features and menu settings since then. Today I ventured out with it for the first time to take some test shots in comparison to my other ILC cameras. It's an overcast day and a problem arose that I haven't encountered before. I'm hoping someone here can help me out with it. When I hold the camera up to my eye, it switches to the EVF and everything is just fine. When I take the camera away from my eye to change settings while viewing the rear screen or to chimp the images I've just taken, the rear LCD keeps turning off. Further investigation reveals that it is switching to EVF. If I move the camera about at a comfortable distance to view the screen (i.e. tilt it, lift it higher or lower as one might do to minimize glare) it keeps alternating between EVF and rear screen. The rear screen stays on if I pull out the rear screen and use it in articulated style, but when up against the back, the rear screen won't stay on. Everything works fine when I'm indoors, it was just today when I took it outside that I've had this problem. By comparison, one of the cameras I was testing it against is my Samsung NX1. It also has an EVF and it worked perfectly fine today in the same conditions. I also have a Sony RX10 - it was my first camera with an EVF and I've never had this problem with it. I could see the proximity sensors on the E1Mkii and they were free of dust and smudges. I tried cleaning them anyway but that didn't change a thing. So, do I have a setting somewhere that's messed things up? If so, which one? Do your E1Mkii's perform the same? If I have to manually switch between EVF and rear screen whenever I'm outdoors, the camera is going back - that would be completely unacceptable to me!
