BMWX5 -- No reason to make guesses. MarkSA's experience matches mine. I have and use an a900, an a850, and an a77. I print using Epson printers up to 36" x 50". The view in the a77 EVF is such a poor approximation of what the pictures look like on screen or when printed that I have to conclude that you are trolling for attention and are not interested in intelligent discussion.

Please let me know what your experience is, with what equipment, and why your experience differs so completely from MarkSA's and mine.

No camera ever made gives a final image that is totally true to the original.

I use an A55 and A65 and have previously used OVF SLR's (Film) and DSLRs (A100). For me the EVF gives me a more realistic representation of the final image. It is real enough that I can adjust exposure and white balance while looking in the EVF to more realistically match the real scene in the final image while the OVF always looks right regardless of my camera settings.

For example when photographing in incandescent light what looks right in an OVF usually looks orange in the final image. With the EVF I see that orange look and can adjust the WB to make the final image look right.

This is my experience and I am not trolling for attention. Do you always accuse people of trolling when they disagree with you?

Well said. That's why people use other programs to tone their photos and fixing colors to bring out its true nature of color. The fact that you get the result via EVF is such a great feature. Less hassle and more user friendly like adjusting the settings on ISO, WB, and etc etc. I used to use an OVF though I don't have a problem on it the EVF is easier to use. Shot and go.
