    Is there a way to turn off the display. Given that the spare batteries are not available I want to do everything I ca to preserve the battery life while I'm on vacation.

    I'm not just saying turn off live view and it switches to the super control display but completely turning it off.

    I've read through the manual, and searched this site but I've not found if this is possible.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Press the info button to toggle the rear LCD display. I found it by accident myself!

    That just switches off the EVF and use the Live view

    Awesome that was it :)

    That's not entirely true. Where are you located? I know Oly direct has shipped out orders from at least the first week of April. I have 2 in front of me =)

    BH had estimated they'd get something last Friday, not sure if anyone got theirs yet.
