While I prefer EVFs myself there is no way you can say they are "way better" than OVFs. OVFs do have some advantages and as long as that is true there will be disagreement as to which is better. It is useless to keep bringing this debate up again and again by either side as it is a waste of time.

Quite right, neither is better in an absolute sense. One is better for you and another for me. It depends on what our personal priorities are when we look through the viewfinder and also on the way in which we like to work.

The problem here, is that quite a number of EVF fans are trying to ram them down our throats, before EVF is as good as we'd like it to be for the way we work. Telling us to "gt*o" if we don't like what Sony are doing. The fact is, that Sony is doing a lot of good stuff (not least by having their link with Zeiss) and now that I've made an investment into Sony, I want to stay. But I don't have to accept EVF as it stands today, in order to stay with Sony. I can buy secondhand. I prefer to buy this way, with most of the depreciation taken out of the product by the rich boys who must have the latest tech on day one. Thanks for paying for me to enjoy my photography!
