peterharvey: Should I jump into the EVF mirrorless bandwagon now while the EVF is only XGA resolution @ 1024 x 768 & 0.8 MP, hence a pixelated view?
Or should I wait till EVF resolutions improve to full HD @ 1920 x 1080 & 2 MP, and Canikon offers a mirrorless FF body compatible with their huge range of lenses?
Presently, I'm holding off, because I know that history has proven that technology will definitely develop.
For example, during WWII, the two way radio was back pack size!
By 1983, Motorola released the world's first brick sized mobile phone called the Motorola Dynatac.
By the 1990's, the mobile phone got down to TV remote control size.
By the 2000's, the mobile phones became credit card sized!
Today, the mobile phones have increased in size to become 5" smart phones etc.
Hence, I'm holding off for a bit longer, before I move into EVF mirrorless...

The A7II has a 2.3 MP dot EVF.
In other words, each individual dot: red, blue, and green totals 2.3 MP.
However, it takes 3 dots to make 1 pixel, thus presently, the EVF's are only XGA @ 1024 x 768 for 0.8 MP - hence we can still see the pixels.
Later, technology will certainly improve the EVF's resolution to full HD for 1920 x 1080 2 MP for a more seamless view...

These ultrawide angle zooms 7-14 mm with wide aperture at f2.8 is no lightweight; it is actually heavier than the flagship E-M1.

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (368 comments in total)

I have a hunch the aging 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 is still a better lens overall: equal in sharpness, but wider in aperture, bigger, heavier, a metal mount, and still more expensive?
