Seeing Purple -- NEX-5N & Voigtlander Skopar 8.3cm f4.5 (from a folding camera)
I received the EVF from Sony today. About a week ago I dropped off the defective one at the Sony Services. A big surprise when I opened the package: a brand new FDA-EV1S viewfinder! I guess they either couldn't fix the bad one, or not worth their while to do so. In any case, I am very happy. Tried it on the NEX-5N and it looks so beautiful, without the mind altering distortion of the defective one. The week that I was without the EVF, I really missed it. Without it, focusing is just not as accurate.
I am extremely happy with the Sony service, as with the Panasonic service. I used the Sony service twice and in both counts I was treated nicely and the service was done very promptly. Can't say the same for Canon, unfortunately. I have been a decade long Canon user, but I have never been completely satisfied with their service. Companies that provide excellent service deserve our business.
I will write up a post on the EVF at the end of the week, with my experience.
By the way, I have completely solved the flare/white out issue with the Voigtlander 8.3cm f4.5 lens. No longer do I have to worry about which way I need to shoot to avoid the flare and it's a great feeling. I will create a separate post on how to get the most out of the old lenses.
