Is the SLT-A57 EVF supposed to be washed out (lacking contrast) or is something wrong with mine?

    So my only two previous references to EVF were a Sony NEX-6 and my current A7ii which are on the higher end of EVF (OLED as well) so perhaps I was expecting too much but getting the A57 today for my brother, I just was surprised that the EVF lacks contrast...everything looks watched out and I cannot get the same sense of what my image is going to look like when taking a photo compared to my A7ii.

    Is this normal or is there something wrong with mine? I got it used from a Fred Miranda user so just want to make sure. I mean, is much better than the crappy one from a Canon SX60 I bought to sell for a profit recently but still.

    Thanks for any comments! :)

    Cool, thanks for the confirmation. I was afraid something was wrong.
