I'm reasonably certain that you understand that the argument being made is that with an EVF the need to check photos - typically exposure, after a shot is diminished, thereby presenting an obvious advantage for mirrorless.

So, I think we're done.

If you wish to continue debating semantics, then I can also present a few sources supporting my description of "chimping".

And it definitely does not refer to the use of the LCD for taking photos, or changing settings.

There is play mode, there are settings, and many customers like to shoot like it is a P&S or smartphone.

Hmmm..... sounds sort of like "Chimping" to me... but then we know that mirrorless users never EVER do that, don't we ;-).
