Quote:I'm sure the EVF's are getting quicker. I really wonder if we will see both in the same camera someday. With my ancient Sony, there was really no time lag with EVF. But...the sensor was very small so there was less to relay. Just fooling around I was trying to find things that OVF could do, that Live View could not. Well, there still are some things. With the depth of field preview button I was surprised to see that you could adjust the aperture while holding the button down and be able to better frame extremely bright scenes. You can also release the shutter without releasing the depth preview button. (I don't think this was always possible) Obviously the Live View lets you see the frame better in dim lighting. In the end you can get the photo either way, most of the time, but they remain different and complimentary tools! And I want both! I know Live View is not the same as EVF. EVF would be a real net battery life saver if you could have a switchable EVF that deactivated the much larger view screen that live view needs. I guess I know not many seem to agree, but I'd like it.
I feel before I leave this mortal coil, I should own an EF XXmm F/1.0. Is Canon going to man up, or am I going to have to wait for Sigma or China to come through?
That is a standard option these days, AFAIK. Certainly on Oly MFT cameras.
HTH, kind regards, Wim
