Pre-visualization, that is the issue!

So you like to compose in the viewfinder but base your exposure and processing decisions on the unprocessed view through the OVF? I can see that could be a problem with an EVF.

What I think you're missing, though, is the value of an EVF as a visualization aid. Instead of looking through the VF and imagining how the final picture will look, you can adjust your in-camera development controls and see in some detail how it will look. There are some obvious limitations. Nobody will be able to make those adjustments while shooting action photography, EVFs will need to get better color reproduction before they're really ready, and it would help if cameras gave faster access to picture controls.

And the EVF doesn't visualize flash.
