We can have it two ways in the dark:

- fast update and grainy images (due to short integration times, physics dictate)

- slow update and less grainy images (the price to pay is lag)

And people will complain no matter which of the two solutions manufacturers would choose. I'd suggest they had an option for the user to select the low light refresh rate.

Sony offer a grainy view almost without lag even when it gets dark - to me that is a sound choice.

I'm of the opposite opinion. I think Fuji did it right keeping the images in EVF clean at the expense of motion lag. We are talking about low light here, static scenes, so there is hardly any detriment other than esthetics to having a lag. But having a noisy image prevents one from clearly seeing what he's shooting, and especially bad for manual focusing.
