Viewfinder beats liveview (my "road to damascus" experience)
In reply to Richard Franiec, Mar 8, 2013

Hi,

I never missed a viewfinder with my DP1 (I had a [bad] OVF for it but never used it). With my D800 I am using the viewfinder pretty much all the time. Even with the very very good LCD it features I only use liveview when I want to create an image with maximum sharpness. Composing with a *good*(!) viewfinder is so much better than composing with an LCD! I never thought that it would be like this but I totally changed my mind.

A highend electronic viewfinder might even be better (with histograms, focus peaking and stuff)... but so far even the NEX7 EVF did not convince me because it does not feature the clarity of an OVF.

Joerg
