Live View Boost & the Histogram

Just in case you aren't aware of this...

A couple of days ago I was adjusting the Custom Mode settings and unintentionally left 'Live View Boost' active (Menu Cog D2).
Today whilst using A mode I was baffled when the histogram in the EVF failed to respond to changes in Exposure Compensation (even though on Playback the images had been adjusted with the expected EV offsets).

I knew that LV Boost affected the brightness of the EVF/LCD and eventually realised that the Histogram must be displaying the characteristics of the image as displayed on the EVF rather than that of the image being sensed with the Shutter/F stop/ISO/ExComp values applied.

The User Manual warns that when S-OVF is active the display is not adjusted for settings (p 121) but doesn't warn about this in the case of LV Boost.
