It wasn't sarcasm, it was a proper double facepalm moment. one for each of you.
I'm still struggling to find logical reasons that the flappy mirror box is so necessary.
I understand that for someone lugging around multiple bags full of gear the size of the camera isn't a big deal, but if it's unnecessary, and even inferior, why do you still want it?
the thing of it is --- EVF tech is still inferior to OVF. EVF is great for live view nighttime shooting. But for regular purposes...no way is it ready for full time professional work. Lots of kinks and bugs to work out
Or you could go large format (8x10) and use the latest NoVF technology.....
(NoVF is NO viewfinder)
The optical viewfinder is a mature technology, it is about as good as it is going to get... It has advantages and it has disadvantages. EVF's are still immature. They are steadily getting better and have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Right now, I'd pick OVF over EVF because the OVF is generally better... but I can see the day coming when the EVF comes out on top.
If we are discussing possible future bodies, as part of that discussion we should assume that this future body will have to decide between future EVF technology and an OVF, not current technology.... and this makes it a much harder decision.
