It simply takes milliseconds of processing time to capture the image, process it, relay it and display it in the EVF. So for tasks like sports, birds in flight - anything that needs critical timing, the OVF is likely to be faster - probably always.

And so TV cameras will not be able to follow golf balls, hockey pucks, baseballs, etc. because they all use EVFs. Oh, wait...they have been doing that for years.

TV cameras don't have to compose, sharply focus on and then capture an image of that golf ball or hockey puck. This argument is about as fatally flawed as a screen door on a submarine.

The last hockey game I watched on TV was pretty well composed and the puck looked pretty sharply focused to me

Which I would say explains a whole lot.
