On the EVF...I don't know why people expect the evf to be free. If they added the evf that they are selling for $299 as an external add-on then the camera would be $1000 and then people would really start to complain. Leave it off so that those of us that can't justify spending that kind of money on a camera can afford it.

I agree that was  rational market decision by Canon. The MK2 would be similar to the Olympus PEN cameras. Buy the EVF  only if you want it.

Your math was slightly off though,  $799 + $299 would be $1098.

I was  about to pre-order it without the EVF, because I never used the viewfinder on the original, but I found a refurbished Olympus EM1 online for $1100, couldn't resist since I still have a small camera and can use all my existing Olympus lenses if I want.
