Richard-on-Thames: Well Ok, my two cents:

What you see in the evf of the Sony is a jpeg simulation. What you see in the ovf of the Nikon is the scene itself, with which the photographer is (supposed to be) engaging. The evf element of wysiwyg only applies to photographers that aren’t equipped to visualise the photograph they are making – but need the machine to help them to be a photographer.

DSLR is a proper camera requiring photographic knowledge, Sony gadgets are for those who don’t really understand the connection between the photographer and the subject.

The DSLR (or medium format / large format film cameras) will always be the choice of educated photographers.

As I said – just my two cents - ;)

With a ovf in a DSLR (and SLR like my OM1) you see the integrated light meter to judge whether the aperture and SS are giving a correct (or desired) exposure. If the meter shows underexposure you adjust either the aperture or SS or EC to compensate. With a evf the light meter is the whole scene that changes as you adjust the aperture/SS/ISO. So, they are both similar - the user still has input into the exposure they want. Personally, I prefer the evf showing the whole scene as I can tell exactly which parts of the scene will be light and dark and to what degree.

What makes you think that photographers aren't equipped to visualise the photograph they are making and need the machine to help them be a photographer? It sounds like you're inferring that mirrorless cameras with the evf are only for newbies or those who don't know about the exposure triangle/stops/FLs/histograms etc? What about people who learned on film or DSLRs and chose to move to mirrorless? You still have to know about exposure to use a mirrorless camera. You can still put a DSLR in full auto and click away, which is what most people who don't know about photography do...in fact, most people who buy a camera buy a DSLR and put it in full auto.
I learned on a DSLR and now use Sony, because for me it offers more advantages for the type of shooting I do. Your post is a sad reflection of your snobbery and ignorance of the demographic who actually use cameras, and quite insulting to photographers who choose to use mirrorless.

In reply to:

Albert Valentino: Is the high ISO skin smoothing exclusive to jpg, like previous Xtrans II bodies, or does this include raw captures as well?

He said 'without people jumping to the wrong conclusion', he didn't imply that they wouldn't understand. Two completely different things. Maybe you need to improve your understanding of the English language and understand and interpret what people say instead of critising them and their country.
