Re: I looked through an optical viewfinder

I'm a first time DSLR buyer and after looking through tons of reviews I bought myself an a77.

The EVF was for me one of the deal makers on this camera, because it does have some nice features and I do think at some point this will be the future.
Sony is doing something new with the OVF and have improved it greatly in the a77 from what I read and I can honestly say that every Nikon and Canon camera out there seems to me to be the norm for the last 10 years with nothing ever changing.
When I buy something new, I'd like it to be at the top for the next 10 and not at the top for the last 10 years with something new at the horizon that is about to replace it.

I don't think EVF is perfect, I do not like how choppy and noisy the EVF gets in low light conditions and I do notice a lag which makes it hard to follow flying birds, but I do think I can get used to it like others are used to using an OVF all their lifes.
