Thanks! I didn't think of the zooming that is not as convenient with the EVF as with the touch screen, but can you be more precise in your focus setting because of the higher resolution of the EVF? Is there really a big difference?

The resolution of the EVF is actually much higher (about 2.4x). But, for me, i prefer zooming in and fine tuning focus.. i can do it on the fly fairly easily now. In this case, the added resolution of the EVF doesnt matter as much since when you MF, you are looking for when the photo "snaps" into focus.

I dont use peaking for still photos because thats just not accurate enough.. so again, the EVF would not benefit the way i shoot.
