    So, 3 things we’ve noticed about the DSMC2 EVF.

    1) The part of the EVF Mount that allows you to rotate the EVF isn’t dampened.

    2) The diopter ring isn’t dampened.

    3) When you look through the EVF, there are visible — albeit faint — horizontal lines.

    Is everyone else’s the same?

    Dave,

    Its hard to define dampened but both rotation and diopter feel smooth enough for my taste. Faint horizontal lines are never visible on my DSMC2 OLED EVF.

    The rotate part is unlock move then lock, what kind of dampening do you need?

    I see no lines in the EVF.

    The diopter just screws in and out - maybe compared to others it feels a bit basic?

    What i would love to see are different optical diopters for perhaps magnifying the image a bit, i do find it a little small for my taste (and i know other would equally like it as it is - it's a taste thing)

    cheers
    Paul

    I have never seen any lines on my DSMC2 EVF - works great since day zero!

    I don’t get any horizontal lies on my EVF either
