Re: Part of the reason...

I've tried and used the Alpha 850 and plenty of film cameras.

Their VF is certainly bigger and brighter than the 550, but it's still like looking through a (better, brighter) telescope instead of composing a WYSIWYG image from the sensor.

The experience is certainly different, and I prefer to look at what the sensor is seeing.  I can see why some people hate the EVF (the same reason I prefer it).

BTW, before some people chime in about the "terrible" dynamic range of the EVF, etc. -- all I can say is if you adjust your camera settings properly the EVF DR is very good. . .
