philmguy1: Interesting to see all of the defensive posts here.
I'm a professional photographer who has shot Canon for more than 40 years and have no regrets. My 5D Mk III is wonderful as are all my lenses, including the newest version of the 100-400.
That said, I've waited and waited and waited for Canon to deliver a mirrorless camera that is aimed at something other than the consumer-level market and they keep disappointing. And, now here's another example. I've toyed with higher-level Olympus and Fuji mirrorless cameras and they've been OK, but I've continued to hold out hope that Canon would finally make a dramatic move in that market. Time to stop hoping. Perhaps the amount of time it took to get the 5D Mk IV to market is an indicator of Canon's stagnation.

Well, considering how long mirrorless has been in the vanguard, Canon (and Nikon, too) has had plenty of time for experimentation. I love my Canon gear but was hoping to see some of the wonderful technology from its DSLRs evolve into a pro level mirrorless. Apparently it's an area Canon is willing to cede to Sony, Olympus, Fuji et al.

If I have the EVF Auto Switch set to on and set the Rec View to, say, 3 seconds, then take a photo using the EVF it displays the image in the EVF. Any way to get it to always display the image just taken on the LCD screen?
