Viewfinder optics, a rarely mentioned feature

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.
