Re: why give up OVF with MirrorLess camera like Nex

Why give up a rangefinder for an SLR? SLR doesn't show infinity view like a RF and I can't see the parralax correction, nor can I see 'outside the frame', I can't change my frame lines and when using telephoto or wide angle lenses I don't get to use my turret finders. My scene is all blurry until I focus, so I have to be in focus before I can see what I am shooting and when I stop down the viewfinder goes all dark!

I don't know why anyone woukd give up their rangefinder to 'see through the lens'
