R5 dim viewfinder

While using R5 today view finder went very dim and has a greenish tint to it.  The brightness does not change when adjusting the manual brightness settings. Images look fine when viewed on display screen.

I suggest that you contact Canon Support and setup a repair ticket.

I'm really struggling with the R5 viewfinder is bright daylight. I've tried disabling exposure simulation and increasing the viewfinder brightness to maximum. I've never had any problem like this with a SLR. My friend and I were both using the 24-70 f/2.8 yesterday and we swapped for a comparison, and the viewfinder looked great with her 5D3, and she agrees that my R5 viewfinder looked disturbingly dark.
