Viewfinder flip feature?

Hey Shannon or Pete, could one of you guys go to page 90 of the manual and look at the hotkeys, and then assign LCD FLIP to one of the keys, and let us know of it flips the viewfinder when the stock lens is attached?

At ResFest they said that the image flip would only work if the stock lens was removed. But reading the manual, it doesn't specify that. So I'm wondering if the flip is active even with the stock lens attached...

Just tried that. It doesn't work with the stock lens on.

Naw Barry. It doesnt' I got worried and thought I had a defect until I read and found out it wont do it if the stock glass is on it. I pulled the lens off and tried it and it fliped (and took away all the screen info) and it only flips 1 way.

Man, what a tease that is, for the alternative imaging 35mm crowd. :(
