    I got a new 75-300mm lens yesterday and took it out to test the C-AF I've seen discussed here. Overall I was pretty impressed but have more testing and playing around with it to do.

    However, I didn't like that the EVF kept flashing the picture previously taken so that I couldn't see the live action actually going on.

    Will the S-OVF address this issue? Nothing I see in Oly's writing addresses this part of it.

    Not sure where in the menu but you can turn off the display of photograph just taken. Also, if you want/need to follow action use Low FPS because in High you will get blackout and it will be harder to follow the action.

    The setting is called Rec View, and is in the last menu (with the Wrench icon).

    I tried it and it is a little better. Usable.

    It's the one problem with EVF.

    That's why I was asking about the S-OVF. Maybe it will be a true simulation even in this respect.

    Not likely and I really don't see the purpose of it.

    True simulation of a DSLR? Even a DSLR viewfinder blacks out when the mirror flips up. Analogous thing happens with an EVF when the shutter is released, except the image freezes. If you turn off the rec view, you're basically getting the same thing, right? Ditto with S-OVF, I figure.

    Dang, has it been that long since I sold my e-620? LOL

    I forgot about the mirror blackout. :)

    Fair enough.
