It's not the one sided "win" I often hear about.

Sorry, when I set white balance to incorrect values (and am not shooting RAW, but JPG) I'm in trouble as long as I don't re-check the first pictures. Sometimes I see it in the EVF, but daylight or flashlight setting are rather similar. I never see my mistake in the OVF.I wouldn't call EVFs color accurate... yes, if you're shooting JPEG and set a blatantly incorrect white balance you would see that.
IMO if you don't care about color accuracy, just knowing what WB you've set (and roughly its effect) would suffice.
If you do care about color accuracy... there's a reason to color calibrated displays / processing chains.
You might prefer EVFs, but they are by no means essential in this regard.

It's good to have a drawer for each opinion, that makes discussions so much easier, right?). How about your respect for people choosing for some good reasons a mirrorless system (which btw is already two years old) additionally to a DSLR? How about rethinking your conception instead of talking about a system you were briefly looking through at the last photokina two years ago? A lack of personal experience apparently doesn't prohibit strong opinions. But that doesn't make them well-based.I'm respecting those who choose MILCs by not going to MILC threads telling them how their choice is wrong. As you can see, I'm not telling you your choice is wrong even here - while I'm being told mine is.
Why are you assuming that was my entire experience with EVFs? Throwing "lack of personal experience" is both rude and untrue, and an often used tactic of the MILC propaganda.
And how much do you think I should use them until I'd notice how uncomfortable and unnatural they are for me?

It's not perfect, but most of my concerns against EVF turnt out to be prejudices or outdated. I don't want to pull anybody "to the other side" and I'm not participating on camera sales, keep your DSLRs as long as you like. I also will not sell the D850, mainly because Nikon failed in making a proper Z battery grip. But each time I use I feel limited. My focus and recompose tryouts never gave me accurate sharpness in critical situations, so I changed my AF-technique and get more keepers, but still not as much as with ML.
Good for you; but why do you feel the need to tell us this, here?
