- When an EVF is a negative as it adds weight, one would expect that all camera's with such an EVF would be noted for that downside. I looked up the X100S: no mention of EVF being negative.

Another thing: X100s gets a gold award. When I look at the list of cons that is a very long list. The video is crappy, there seem to be moire issues,

- Its video is much better than EP5/EM1s, yet it is scored the same...

Gold silver...I don't care. I know it is subjective, but I do like that similar camera's get treate dand rated in a similar way.

A view finder is a feature that is used generally, regardless of stills or video. Video is something not everybody wants or needs and is not required for video. As such the quality of a view finder should have more weight than video.

...about video.

Via DPR, they are saying that the video is rated as the same as the E-P5, E-M1.

As far as I can tell, GX7 has much better video than either of those two, so why is it rated the same?

And yes, I do agree with you that the EVF should be ranted higher in importance than video.
