It must be said though, that some OVFs are not very nice to use. 'Dark little tunnels' has often been used to describe them. I'd rather have a good EVF than a bad OVF, and I'd rather have a good OVF than a bad EVF. I just like to see what I'm shooting as clearly as possible.

This is one reason why I believe full frame is eventually going to take over most of OVF-land, leaving the crop-sensor market largely to mirrorless.  It just gives a much better viewfinder experience, and that's something that even the most naive customers will notice right away when they try a camera in the shop.
