:-)...Ill start the thread with a smile..but after trying a Oly EM1 today EVFs will have to be a quantum leap better before I go that way..VF blackout was terrible as was the colours that the VF displayed..Lag is also a problem..sorry and all but I fear Ill have to lug the D800 a while longer or look at the new Df or whatever its going to be called ....

if your serious about you hobby/profession then the Mirrorless is just a toy

im not prepared to lose that connection with the subject and the EVF does just that.. other than that it was not a bad camera

Yes (although I don't agree about the Epson VF you refer to), but there are also times when an OVF is also terrible: it doesn't show you the correct DOF, the exposure may not be correct, it cannot have the variety of overlay information supplied by an EVF, it doesn't allow for the variety of MF aids that are available.

You don't have to agree with me, and I'm sure people still said riding a horse and buggy to work was great when Ford came out with the model T...

Someone who offers both EVF and OVF without other flaws will clean up.
