I've taken BIF shots of the large birds shown with a HX200V. But have had faster and more erratic birds fly right out of the frame because I'm looking at EVF delay not where the bird is at the moment of the shot.

There's not that much delay with modern SLT cameras. They are far quicker than the HX200V. The delay is so short that reaction time is a much greater problem. The following photos of fast erratic moving birds was taken with an A77.

Look at the picture, not the pixels

Misuse of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
