I'd like to request a moment of silence for the passing of an old friend. Though he was a good friend, I never knew his name. I guess he is called the optical viewfinder blackout curtain. It's that little curtain that cover the optical viewfinder when you switch between the OVF and the EVF. It has stuck in the open position so when you switch to EVF mode, it project the EVF over your clear OVF window which is very disconcerting. I'm fairly certain I don't want to send it in for repair. God only knows how much that would cost and the camera still takes fine photos. I think I'll probably just put a piece of black tape over the window and lose out on the cool OVF. I really enjoy the OVF, but if I can only have one of the two, I think the EVF is more useful.
