I came across this today:

It mentioned 2 things I didn't know already:
  1. The 'OVF' simulation mode puts the EVF in a strong HDR mode to get more detail in both highlights and shadows. Rudy points out it doesn't make it optical :) I had heard about this mode, but not a description on what it actually does.
  2. There's a mode where it will keep the lens stopped down, so you get a proper exposure and DoF simulation without having to keep the DoF preview pressed down.
Number 2 sounds like a nice thing to have on other R cameras, but I bet we will only see that in future releases, not in firmware updates.
