In my case, last year I wanted to buy a 500 prime but didn't do it because of the uncertainty about 5DV and 7D3. So now I have money for a new camera and a very expensive tele lens. Switching is becoming more and more easy.

Being a Canon fan, I don't want to switch but I don't want to be forced to buy things that are a step backwards like the current EVF.

What do you mean with "backwards like the current EVF"?

The current EVFs are not suitable for sports and wildlife shooters.

I agree that OVF looks better but that doesn't necessary means that it delivers better resoults. There are several dissadvantages of mirrorless but I think EVF is no one of them. Zero lag OVF doesn't help much with really fast action because photographer can not react in time to get a perfect shot. High framerate is important and also focusing methods that mirrorless can deliver and are not possible on OVF.

The only people using high frame rates back in the film era were news photographers.

The rest of us had to buy our own film and processing.
