Re: For some things, EVF is better.....

As I said...this has nothing to do with AF. I can see the actual DOF in the viewfinder...you can't. If you are shooting at f1.2 on your Canon, the DOF you see in the OVF is limited to about f2.5.

But again what's the problem? I actually never check DOF on all my Canon DSLRs that don't prevent me from nailing down subjects.

Your searching native lenses isnt the topic. I can use Fuji, Voigtlander and Leica glass. I can use the voigtlander 35 f1.2 and the 50 f1.1. Or the Leica f1. Or I can use the metabones adaptor on these and get an even shallower dof.

That's why I said native f/1.2 and f/1.1 on Fuji that you still can AF/AE. How shallow, as shallow as FF eq F/0.8? Don't forget Canon or Nikon FF cameras also can use their old legacy lenses or third party lenses thru adapter such as legendary Canon EF 50mm f/1.0L USM (that is a native EF lens doesn't even need an adapter) which is eq F/0.6 on APS-C

The issue I am discussing is what one sees in the evf. And with an evf, one sees the actual dof...something you cant do with your ovf.

But again so what? You failed to explain because you're unable to see true DOF below F/2.5 on FF DSLRs, photographers just unable to use those F/1.2, or F/1.4 or F/1.8 or F/2.0 lenses, really? I just don't see why this is a big issue?

Having said that I'd like to see future cameras with both OVF and EVF provided there is room for that.
