Re: OVF versus EVF

I do not see Sony's SLT storming the market with lots of adopters because it mirror less. They appear to be marking time. The smaller stuff yes but that's more for convenience than technology. What you can do on a small one you could probably do better on a big one.

On this topic: Pentax has been studying on a FF release, and it is now in the works. In an interview from over a year ago, the main product developer stated that he was in favor of an EVF  in the newly to be developed FF camera. In his latest interview from only a few weeks ago, he has revealed that the FF camera will have an OVF instead of an EVF, because research has shown, that the large majority of Dslr users prefer and want an OVF, and he puts his own preference second to that of the ones who will be buying and using the new FF dslr camera.

Pentax appears to listen a lot to their user base, and I'm not saying that to beat on Olympus, but the approach actually exists, and reality is definitely slower to change than some radically minded m4/3 supporters would want to make us believe.....
