It's very difficult (virtually impossible) to judge critical focus in the EVF without some kind of focus aid . This is because an EVF is very low resolution when compared to an optical finder. Even with an optical finder it can be tricky.

That is wrong. The resolution of the EVF is 1.4million pixels. It looks almost real, and the almost normally is due to colours, not resolution.

Which is 1/12 the resolution of the sensor, so 4 pixels have been compressed into 1.

Secondly, the resolution increases by 14 times when one zooms.

Which is the focussing aid I referred to.

No camera is perfect, but the OM-D has the flexibility to achieve manual focus with enjoyment, if one puts the effort to learn the camera.

I have no problem learning my cameras. If you don't want my opinion, fine. Wait until focus peaking comes to Olympus and make your own mind up. I think you'll change your mind. Being able to quickly and accurately focus anywhere in the scene while viewing the whole scene is very compelling.
