I used to think that way. I had the A35, NEX7 and NEX6 and really liked the EVFs. Due to Sony's jumpiness and unclear road map, instead of upgrading to A77, I switched to Nikon D7100. I must say it was much easier than expected to go back to OVF. It's more a binocular feeling about it and the camera info is nicely displayed on the bottom OLED screen under the OVF. It is nice that there is no lag and that I can also use it before I turn on the camera.

OVF was DOA to me on DSLR. May be it holds some value on FF DSLRs with its own limitations, on APS-C... no way in hell I'm buying one.

Just out of curiosity I had a peek at your gallery. (I'm glad you have one - so many people don't give us even a clue as to what kinds of shooting they like to do.)

Anyhow, it's clear that for the kinds of photos you enjoy taking, an EVF is just fine, and I understand why you wouldn't need or see the value in an OVF. That's fine by me, but not all of us take the same kinds of photos, and not all of us would be happy with using an EVF.

I couldn't find a single image in your gallery I could take with either EVF or Live View in my cameras. Perhaps you meant something like this?

That is eight of fourteen frame sequence, taken with Sony A55 + Sony 16-50/2.8 SSM. Or this low-light panning...
