Hi,

I've been using the VF-2 on my EP-2 for a while and find it to work very well for my purposes. My only problem has been that if I shoot an image, and then press play to review it later, the review is on the LCD, not in the EVF. I can press the EVF button to change it to the EVF, but the next time I hit the play button, output is back to the rear LCD.

Is there any way to change this so that it always goes to the EVF? It's a nuisance when I want to check focus and I have to press the EVF button first every time.

Thanks!

It used to be the way you want it before the last firmware upgrade ...

I preferred it that way, since I control it, not the camera.

Anyway, I got used to the new style already, maybe there are more people who prefer it the way it is now.

I would love to have the change you mention! It interrupts the flow having to push the button to go back and forth.

I didn't realize the earlier firmware had this. It seems an odd change, but I'm glad I'm not alone in wanting this! Hopefully, if they can undo it in one firmware update, they can redo it in another?

Interestingly I find this desired behaviour mildly annoying on the GF1, but I guess it's just something to get used to.

Everything is fed to the EVF when the EVF is enabled; live view, playback, the whole shebang. With the LVF1 being fairly low res, I prefer reviewing on the LCD. On a G1/G2/GH1 or PEN with the much higher resolution and larger EVF, I might find this more enjoyable, particularly with the low resolution of the PEN LCDs (only marginally better than the LVF1!).
