Put a 3 stop on this weekend so I could shoot wide open with the 35mm in the bright SoCal sun.
The HUD in the OVF ramps up and down on it's own.
However it was so dim I could not make out exposure comp.
Then I realized it was setting the HUD brightness based on the sensor with a 3 stop...
Find a target not too far away so you can easily see it's in focus. I used a heavy towel about 6' away.
Switch to Continuous AF.
Set Aperture to wide open.
Listen to the lens, it's adjusting focus non-stop to compensate for your slight hand held movements.
Now set Aperture to f/16...
Saw a scoop.it post that said the brightness of the EVF and OVF can be set independently using QMenu / "LCD brightness".
What I am seeing is LCD Brightness can be set independently for the EVF and LCD. If you have your eye to the viewfinder, "LCD brightness" adjusts the EVF.
However it does...
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Straight OOC. If there is any LR4 PP I will note it...
I'm not one for carrying toasters and telescopes around which is what drew me to M43 in the first place, it's small size.
When considering the X-Pro1 I had to determine how much of a size/weight penalty I was willing to take over my GH2. Turns out, there really isn't any.
Now that I have a few things figured out, time to shoot
Outside the feed store is an old wagon filled with flowers
Left the feed store and stopped by the SkyDiving Capitol of the World
Not great light, blazing sun almost straight up
Aperture priority, ISO 200, some provia, some...
I am coming from a GH2 which is fast and furious with it's AF. I have caught a single bee in flight with it and the Oly 45mm wide open, no problem.
I understand the X-Pro1 has a shallower DOF so it's a more difficult challenge, both for it and me.
But I also see times...
