To EVF or not to EVF on RX100M2
Sep 19, 2013


I am in a quandry.   Do I get an EVF or not.  I have had a lot of point and shoots and now a DSLR and all of them had OVFs.  I got the RX100M2 mostly because its one of the best compacts AND its pocketable.

But now I find that I am constantly putting the LCD screen up to my eye.  Which does not work.....  In addition I need reading glasses or progressive lens glasses.  All of the other cameras, with an OVF,  had an adjustment for my eyes.  So I did not have to go on shoots with my glasses on all the time.

So an EVF solves that right?  But then it looses the pocketablity.  I would have to pull the EVF off and slip it into another pocket and the reverse process to take a shot.  It sounds cumbersome...... But it has to be pocketable.   I am not wearing it around my neck or on my belt.

So..... my decision is what is more of a pain.... Wearing my glasses all the time or assembling and disassembling the EVF....

Any thoughts to help me decide.
