When I switch the mode dial to a custom user mode (1 or 2), the whole user mode parameters will show up on the monitor/EVF, can I opt not to see that? It's kinda annoying when you want to switch & shoot. Now, I have to switch and see the parameters on the screen and then half-press the shutter button to dismiss it and shoot.
Can the Sony A7 II custom user modes be configured to not display on the EVF when selected?
I'm pretty sure you just press display a couple of times. I work in a camera shop and can try this and confirm tomorrow (gmt) will edit my answer to either confirm this or give the correct answer
So glad I could help. If possible and you have the rep please upvote my answer so I can build my own rep as I am new and also others in the same situation can see my answer was accepted.– VikApr 18, 2015 at 23:59

I'm still waiting for your result, did you forget me?– silentApr 21, 2015 at 10:16
Very sorry for the delay, I've just had chance to look at one, go through the menus etc, and all I can find to change the display is the disp option. The only other thing that I thought might help is to have the screen display the parameters and when you put your eye to the viewfinder this will automatically disapear. I hope this helps with your issue.– VikApr 21, 2015 at 11:08
1@Vik - Begging for upvotes isn't nice, rather pathetic. If you care about rep the best way to get that is to be often on the site, read a lot of questions, and provide answers when you think you can add something useful. Since you work in a camera shop you should be able to help people with the use of their camera.– stevenvhJun 10, 2015 at 9:19
