Whenever I see my subject thru the OVF I never see anything "beautiful" hahahaha! so that reason and explanation from Ricoh sucks. I don't buy it.

When you look through the OVF, you see the world, exactly as it is. If you never see anything 'beautiful' there, why bother taking pictures?

Ha ha, I like that!


Yeah the world is exactly as it is but unfortunately usually the image doesn’t hahahaha! 😀

if we are shooting in the world at approximately 2pm our image might come out a bit overexposed so we chimp a few times till we get what we want.

if we are shooting in low light heck we might even shoot flash so there we go chimping again. I’m sorry but our Camera’s OVF doesn’t have anything to do with how the world actually is. When people were shooting with film that was even worse and usually the photos were a surprise, they either came out fantastic or destroyed.

EVF makes things a lot easier and is great for several different applications. You got all poetic on me with the OVF world thing and that’s nice 😊 but you didn’t get the point.

Well, you don't have to point out the advantages of live exposure preview in EVFs - even though I personally don't find it as useful, seeing how proper exposure is IMO very easy to learn (and even if one struggles, modern sensors have quite a bit of latitude to make up for mistakes).

Anyway, I just wanted to show you a perspective (a 'poetic' one, if you so insist) which points out why some people might prefer OVFs.
