Why?

Because of "EVF lag"? Nonsense. If you're a DSLR shooter, you've been anticipating and compensating for SLR shutter release lag for years.

There's an interesting thread over on the EOS R forum about, what's the point of stills photography if you can just shoot 8K all day long and pick frames from it. Correct responses include points about codecs, being able to work with RAW, and (probably) still a lot of rolling shutter artifacts. However, all of these reasons are things that will be eventually (and not that far in the future) overcome by technology. There's another paradigm shift coming in photography. I don't think I'm interested in it, but those PJs that think they must have an OVF, will be out of work if they can't embrace the change.

They will embrace the change if they must, but until then, pros typically stick with what they have/know and aren’t so wound up in enthusiast tech.  Some like it and some don’t... personal preference.  It’s that simple.  Let’s see what the future brings, but for now, the 1DX lll is fabulous with more recent OVF releases.
