EVF lag times

What is the lag between reality and the EVF?

I know in my 8080 and the 330 LV-A that there is a slight lag and for me it's critical in focusing manually. I don't have the luxury of a tripod and magnified live view for focusing. The wind is almost always blowing, the bugs are moving and I handhold. I rely on a half press of the shutter as I watch thru the OVF and snapping the shot just as the DOF is positioned where I want it. DOF in macro is slim and adding in lag is going to loose me a lot of shots.

The same is going to be true if I'm trying to tweak a birding shot or a wedding photo. AF may get it close but I still rock the focus ring for the focus I want, not what the camera thinks I want. A lag here will not be good either.
