As someone who owns and shoots a V1 AND a D4 , I can tell you that for night time high school field sports, EVF's are not there yet, due to the already mentioned issues with lag and noise...HOWEVER-I'm one who believes that Nikon is using the 1 series as a sort of technology "incubator", and am VERY impressed with the V1's focus speed, high speed capture, and general image quality. In fact, I will go on record with my belief that Niikon has released it's last traditional high end flagship (D1,2,3,4) moving mirror camera...I believe that they are going to put all their energies into making the D5, whenever it comes out, a technology showcase, featuring some of the things they have learned with the 1 series. Really, the ills that affect EVF's are just infant stage design/materiel issues-not long term problems, if our recent display engineering advances continue.
