Viewfinder optics, a rarely mentioned feature
In reply to StevenN, Mar 30, 2013

It's interesting he mentions the optics of the EVF.  In the SLR days, viewfinder optics were often glass with real anti-reflection coatings.  Today, it's cheap, uncoated plastic lenses in most cases which are not the greatest idea for imaging a real-life scene or an EVF.  The viewfinder optics in the old Olympus DSLRs (E-410, E-510, etc) were poor, with low brightness and clarity.  Better built cameras (E-3, E-5, semi-pro Nikon and Canons) tend to do better in this regard because they aren't as cost-restrained.
