In a lot of comparisons on the internet EVF is bad, and OVF is the best? Why is something different counted as bad? I can;t stand it anymore hahaha.
But honestly, I prefer EVF big time

I think that a lot of photographers who have never worked seriously with an EVF camera or don't have this choise within 'their' brand will defend slamming mirror OVF cameras ...

That is bound to happen in the future when OVF will be as prevalent as EVF was 20 years ago.

And 20 years ago, people didn't have choice but to use OVF. Back in those days, however, Rangefinder systems were superior and closer to reality than mirror-based systems for the same reasons that many present for OVF against EVF.

For me, the choice is EVF. There is no going back. It affords me a capable tool from the point of view of the camera. If I need my eyes' point of view, I would rather not rely on an OVF but my eyes.
