I won't buy another camera without an EVF.

There's the panasonic G1, olympus pen cameras. One has an EVF the other only has LCD viewfinder. On both cameras focusing is a big step back from an SLR especially in lower light situations.

You are the first person I see saying that G1 EVF is worse for focusing. I own G1 and I used Canon 5D. In the bright light EVF is far more accurate for manual focusing dues to magnification. In the dark it did get noisy, but the OVF wasn't any easier because the contrast is low in the dark. Even my 2001 Minolta Dimage 7 gave me more confidence in critical focus than the 5D. So for manual focus I'll take a good EVF any time. For AF it's of course irrelevant.
