Lag, it exists but often overstated now....

...let alone when the lag diminishes to imperceptible levels under most relevant circumstances in the future.

I say overstated because I already see WWII veterans (pause...exclamation mark ..pause) shooting R/C planes and helicopters in flight with perfect framing using 2 year old technology with an EVF. And zero disrespect to the elderly, but if you're much younger than that, you shouldn't have any trouble related to lag worth mentioning with that EVF for most action oriented shooting.

So improvements are very welcome and will follow, but the handful of milliseconds (~10 ms in very low light, less in good light) we're talking about now, is hardly going to kill pictures when our reaction time and even the shutterlag (not even counting focusing) on most of the DSLR's sold today is still many times longer.
