I haven't seen anyone mention my favorite reason that EVF>OVF -- focus magnification. I briefly used a friend's Canon and was reminded that I like OVF just fine until I wanted to focus better on something then... wait, no magnification! I'm so used to DMF mode, now. It's a valuable tool. And focus peaking.

I couldn't do without that now either, but there's a lot more mileage than that. Low-light for example, or shooting modes which allow you to superimpose the current view over a previous capture (recreate a pose or if you can move it, align up for a pano).

We are missing something though - looking through the EVF I often wish for a quicker way to move the view are and zoom area more seamlessly/continuously, or be able to see a small view of the full capture superimposed on top.
