Re: Suggests real strength for EVF Cams

When they talk about the short back focus, and the basic
engineering, it's clear that you can save a lot of money with this
design. Plus it's electronic, so prices drop fairly quickly. The
mirror is more of a problem than people realize, I guess.

The full frame people should look at 5D samples. It's clear it
would like prime lenses of the highest quality.

It's too bad the EVF experience does not lend itself to visualizing
pictures the way that ground glass does. I suspect they will
improve this.

The technology for larger, high resolution EVF/LCDs with a fast refresh exists. I suspect that would use up the battery charge much too quickly. Also it may require a faster processor in the camera, increasing the cost.
