Some thoughts about this debate, putting technical and irrelevant issues aside.

I just cannot believe that most people who openly criticize SLTs have ever thoroughly used one...

Unless you are a Sports shooter or a Photojournalist, SLTs are the best way to be able to forget the camera while you are shooting. A camera is supposed to be an extension of you, a third eye looking to create compelling images. When you use an OVF, the camera is actually trying to be "you", instead of approaching you to the final image.

SLTs, EVFs and seamless live view integration approximate you to the product you are creating, making the creative process much more intuitive and productive, due to a much higher degree of freedom.

Now I just look through my EVF or LCD, press the shutter, and I just instinctively know what I´ve captured, and can carry on, with no need to constantly review what I´ve shot, with no need to constantly disconnect from the capturing process.
