Are you even using the terms correctly?

The lag time ... is usually referring to either delay between shutterpress and exposure, or delay between realtime image and EVF image : neither of which is ultimately important in EVFs for "action" : which is more affected by EVF-blackout (NOT Lag), refresh rate and C-AF performance.

According to Wiki, Lag= a failure of an application to respond in a timely fashion to inputs. As for your assertion i am wrong, i was simply quoting what Fuji has on their own website. If you want to split hairs, go file a complaint to Fuji, im sure they will take you seriously.

from Fuji's website.

As for "lag" not being important, i disagree. If you are trying to follow an erattic subject, you snap a shot when it's dead center in frame, but in reality it's not because what you see isn't where the subject really is. This improvement is important, all you have to do is ask in mirrorless forums about lag time with action shooting. They will all tell you the same thing: simply lead your subject, as if you were sniping a moving target. This Fuji EVF is much better.

Technically the X-T1 doesn't have live view at 8 fps, instead it does the usual mirrorless camera trick of playing back recently-taken frames between shots, which gives the illusion of live view. (The giveaway is that you see a series of stills with no fluidity of motion.) This certainly helps with maintaining framing, but isn't perfect for following a moving subject.

That's a nit-pick, though, because it the X-T1 does have continuous AF at 8fps, and it genuinely seems to work quite well.
