He probably is seeing what you do. He just doesn’t feel that “seeing” is limited by the little reflection in his OVF or little display in his EVF.

To a certain extent yes, but to a greater extent, no. When I lift the Pentax to my face, I don't feel like I'm making a choice to leave the world and enter the camera's. I'm in both as the camera 'disappears' and I see through it. It supplements and extends my vision without replacing it. That just doesn't happen when I pick up a MILC.

In some ways it's like driving a stick vs. an automatic. The gain in efficiency and simplicity comes at a cost of connection and control. And on difficult terrain, or for pure pleasure driving, I'd still want a stick.

Pentax appears to be betting that a great enough proportion of ILC users (and prospective ILC users) either feel, or can be persuaded, that that difference matters.  For my lifetime, at least, I hope that they're right. I'd like the choice until such time as MILCs actually offer a compensating advantage as great as what they take away.
