Re: Major flaw with every EVF so far - unuseable in burst mode

You cannot follow and pan with a moving subject, with an LCD or EVF

Valid point. While EVFs are not great for following action, these type of cameras aren't really meant to be action or sports cameras. Also, I cannot imagine following anything moving using the crappy finder on my G9, so unless they have made some sort of huge leap in finder quality, I don't see how the optical finder on this particular camera would help.

Again, I enjoy using good quality optical finders (again think FF SLR), but for mirrorless it is virtually impossible to make them good and cover a range of focal lengths. The SLR camera format worked because you actually look thru the lens, but if you are going to get rid of the mirror, I would much rather still see 'thru the lens' like a SLR and that means an EVF.
