Re: EVF vs Optical

Faster frame rates are possible with the semi-silvered mirror, and there should be less vibration and quieter operation. An EVF is bright in low light. However, the finder quality gets really poor when the light gets low. Also, the refresh rate slows down so following subjects becomes difficult. I have a couple of Panasonic G cameras. The EVF is good enough except in low light. The Sony's use of a semisilvered mirror will keep the finder view working during action shooting, but the EVF's sensor is getting very little light in that mode.
