I prefer optics, that is what photography is about.

Many people don't want to look at the world they are photographing through a small TV set. Try replacing someone's glasses with an electronic viewing screen. Why doesn't Google just replace the entire glasses with an electronic screen? This is why many people prefer their OVF.

I prefer my eye over OVF or EVF, because it looks natural through it. When my eye degrades I prefer to wear contacts or glasses over an electronic eye or monitor and video camera, because it is natural to look through glass. When I look at myself in the mirror, I prefer a mirror over a camera and monitor because it looks more natural.

When you use a mirror, it is a reflection of the object, when you use EVF it is a representation of what a bunch of photosites process and composite into an image then is represented again as a video monitor. It is a representation of a representation.

I prefer to see through optics and a mirror, that is what photography is about. There is nothing wrong with a digital representation of a representation of the object. It is just more natural not to have to go through those gyrations.

35mm film is still around, all the crop versions of film have gone away. Mirrorless is in decline, you cannot deny facts. To say that mirrorless will increase when it is in decline is not wise, how do we determine the future.. we look to the past. Everyone who wants a mirrorless has one buy now and it is still in decline, if someone produces something revolutionary like cell phones, then that technology will take off. Mirrorless has had its big bang and super introduction and now it dwindles, how sad for those who embrace mirrorless. Now all that have to do is put sable technologies down and rave about how someday, their declining tech will rise up out of the ashes.
