I'd say I mostly just use the LCD screen, then the OVF some. The EVF hardly every. May have tried it, but it's not something I use.

Not sure why I "prefer" the LCD over the OVF as I prefer OVF like on a DSLR, but I guess I have become used to just use the LCD on smaller cameras. Besides, the hood blocks part of the view.

It's much as with waist-level finders on medium format gear. There's just something to be said for composing using two eyes looking at an image on a surface at a comfortable viewing distance.

I have the feeling that this approach, by not blocking one's entire view with the camera itself, lends some of the context back to the framed picture in the finder, restoring some of that larger contextual view so often cited by those of us who really like the OVF.

Best wishes,
