Hi all!

Okay, so I've been testing my cameras 51 focus points, live view vs. viewfinder after my repair.

The good news is that live view and viewfinder focus are nearly (99%) identical! Yippee! I mean crips vs crips! The focus is soooooooooooo much better after the repair...

The only real difference between the two is the exposure. It seems that the viewfinder is about 0.7 stops more then live view...the color kelvin seems warmer on life view.

Is there a way (stratigy?) where live view and viewfinder exposures are the same(-ish)?

Tricks, tips?
