Say Pentax offered two version of the K3 - one with a high quality EVF and one with an OVF all things being equal except price. And say the price of the EVF was $100 cheaper; which model do you think would sell better?

I don't know, I don't care and I don't trust the assumption that replacing a high quality APS-C reflex viewfinder system with a high quality EVF would make for a $100 cheaper product.

What I know is that I would still buy the DSLR.

I think if you bet on whether most cameras would be EVF or OVF in 10 years I know where I'd bet.

The trend is clear.

On the other hand Rolex and others still sell flywheel movement watches even though they are not as accurate as the now common quartz watch.  But they are very definitely niche products like I'd bet the OVF will become.
