A good OVF is NEVER outdated.

I used to think that way.

Not any more.

EVF for me all the way.

When I pick up my 5D2 it somehow seems old fashioned, from a different era.  For a moment, I can't understand why I am not seeing real-time, live-view expression of how the camera sees exposure, WB, color... and then I realise I have to take the picture and then worry about chimping after the moment has passed.

SO, for me, a good OVF is already outdated.  April 2013 was the time when it became outdated for me, anyway.

It does not really matter of course, the image and the artists eye is what matters, but I am over having to peer through an optical tunnel to see the image.  It is a hangover from the old era of SLR's and manual focus.  Not that this is bad.  Not at all.  But technology has definitely improved and after a lot of resistance I now embrace it.

I'm never going back to OVF.  Never. The 5D2 and lenses will be sold to buy whatever FF mirrorless Sony launch (provided it has an EVF)
