    On my X-Pro2 the viewfinder shows a yellow 'flare' when the objective is away from my eye. It almost looks like there is something within the optical path. OVF or EVF, camera on or off it still is visible.
    Any ideas?

    How about a reflection from your environment?

    I tried to replicate that...and I think you might have the eye sensor on. When it is and you move the camera about 2-3 inches from your face, the lcd come on. Maybe the lcd reflects to the eye sensor, maybe something else, but it dims the VF as you say in both modes.
