Re: X100(s) and X-Pro1 owners, what is your usage ratio between OVF and EVF?

Probably 85% OVF, 15%EVF.

However, this varies depending upon the lens I am using.

When using the 8mm I use the EVF. When using adapted lens I'll use the EVF unless I either have enough light (or flash) to zone focus and then I'll use the OVF. For my 500mm I use the EVF but have also predictive focused and then used the OVF due to lag.

I also sometimes have the camera set to preview the picture after playback so it will auto switch from OVF to EVF for playback and then back. Wonderful feature.

My preference is strongly for the OVF and that isn't just because the EVF in the XP1 isn't class leading. I had the OMD before the XP1 and prefer the OVF against that EVF as well.
