that said, I think we are several years (3-8 years or more) away from mirrorless cameras that perform (viewfinder/AF) in low light like a DSLR.

Which DSLR performs as well in low light as a Sony alpha a7s?

so you are saying your EVF doesn't lag in low light?


what about the difference in AF speed in lowlight? it's pretty huge compared to the difference for a DSLR.

these are just facts, don't be a fanboy.

The fact you don't know how the EVF of the A7 works in low light show how little your knowledge is about these cameras, then how are your statements of any value in this thread?? To me you sound more of a belittled fan boy than the people you accuse.

EVF lag is almost non existent. In almost total darkness, where all will be totallydark in an OVF, you will be able to see are better exposed but grainier picture in the EVF and maybe a bit of lag, but do you shoot many fast moving objects in the dark??

False there is lag. period

Wauv, excuse me, you got me convinced with your exquisitely detailed arguments. Did you know there is quite a few milliseconds lag from what your eyes sense tip what your brain has made out of it?

Meaning, EVF lag is a non-issue these days and most likely your brain is the bottle neck here

And, I agree. In addition to lag that DSLRs can only address via EFCS.

But, OVF vs EVF is the last straw, especially for those who grew up at the height of SLRdom. To me, it is many steps backwards to even consider an OVF (in fact, a reason my last camera with an OVF was retired ten years ago).
