Do you need EVF these days?

Hi all,

OVF is all optical which mean you see what the exactly the lens sees which is huge. But the EVF isn't exactly that - its what the sensor sees which is what LCD shows as well. The only thing I can think of having a EVF is really that it allows the camera to be held steadily compare viewing the LCD and taking the shot.

Am I missing something here? Why is EVF considered an important factor? shouldn't LCD be good enough these days?

Thanks...
