90% OVF

How often would you say, percentage wise, do you use either? Also, what did you think your ratio would be like when you first bought your camera?

About 90% OVF, 9% EVF, and very occasionally the LCD.

I was an early adopter of the X100 (March 2011) and there wasn't much to go on to expect how often I would use each VF when I got it. I think I anticipated toggling between them almost on a shot by shot basis to see which worked best. But early on I used the OVF more than now. One use of the EVF that I had not anticipated is to deal with flare  (holding my free hand up to block the sun from the lens, using the EVF to check that it is working and that my hand is not in the frame).
