Yep, true, SLR TTL is a (great) mirror trick!

I'd disagree about the "great" part, given the distortions caused by putting the capturing lens in between. My eyes have a much deeper DOF than a 85/1.4 wide open, you know.

As for the rest of your post, you're right of course, but I didn't want to get too technical as few around here seem to have used a rangefinder camera in their lives, and merely saying non-TTL OVF would've made them think of the horribly-distorted view of the tunnel VFs present in most film (and some digital) compacts through history.
