  • Coming from an APS-C pentaprism viewfinder (and previously film SLR), I found the EVF, although state of the art, to be horrible. Very contrasty and ugly picture. I guess, however, that you may just get used to it and hope there's a way of adjusting its contrast.

My conclusion: I'll probably go for the 35/1.4 kit, skip the zoom and hope I'll get used to the EVF. Let's see what others think.

I've always used an OVF and was apprehensive getting the E1 instead of the pro1.  Took no time at all to get used to it.
