Sony has stated that no more of it's "DSLRs" will come with an OVF.

All new Sony's will be SLTs including any FF cameras.
I guess they are banned from you class too!

Ahhh, but the teacher seems to take issue with the CDAF of the GH2, more so than the EVF. That being the case, the Sony SLT cameras still use PDAF, so they should be allowed.

However, I think it is a silly issue from the get go. While CDAF may be slower than PDAF, unless the course is about shooting fast moving subjects, it is not likely to be an issue. And if it is an issue in some instances, then the teacher can address the inherent capabilities and limitations of the two AF systems. I think that is called teaching.
