Yeah. Because listening to a heap of people with none/limited experience of their products is a great way to determine fact.

So you disagree with the fact that focusing of EVIL cameras are slower than SLR cameras and that framing photos through the rear LCD or an EVF is more difficult because of the refresh rate andthat LCD screen have compared to OVF that works at the speed of light?

In both cases, it depends on the cameras and situations being compared.

If you're trying to focus in low light, or with manual focus, etc, then EVF may be better and easier. If you're trying to chase a fast moving object through a long lens, then OVF may be better (though I think there's a better solution than EVF/OVF for that).

As for focus speed. Yeah, I'd put the OM-D up against most DSLR's for S-AF.
