Good point. also good point in showing how far off this would be

According to Fuji Rumors, the refresh rate is 54fps which, if true, makes Fuji's claim of 0.005s (50ms) lag impossible to be true. If the readout and processing speed were both zero (which, of course, they aren't), a 54fps refresh rate means a lag of 1/54 = 0.0185s (18.5ms). Of course, readout and processing speed are not zero. In fact, I suspect they are 0.005s (and Fuji is ignoring the frame period) making the peak lag under ideal conditions (I doubt they are talking about low-light) 0.005+0.0185=0.0235s or 23.5ms. Since I measured my SX50 as having a total lag of 25ms, this is nothing to write home about especially since that 25ms lag made me unable to track a high speed subject I needed to shoot (I simply switched to an SLR and got the job done).

Add to that the claimed CIPA battery life of 350 shots (versus 920 for the Canon 70D) and you're right back to the same old EVF problems - too much lag, too much power use.

200fps with no pipeline latency? I dont see an evf doing this anytime soon. meaning we arent really anywhere close to that holy grail evf (that still has an ugly picture) certain folks are foaming at the mouth about
