Yesterday afternoon i sat down near a couple of dead trees to try and shoot a kingfisher in flight. They are such quick and erratic birds that it is almost impossible to follow one in flight as it is darting and diving. The best chance to get the shot is to focus on the bird while it is sitting on its perch and when it jumps off to quickly fire off a couple of shots before it is out of frame. In order to do that you need to sit there with your eye glued to the viewfinder and finger on the shutter button ready to press. I did that for two hours straight yesterday for three failed shots. Went the wrong way twice and I was a hair too slow the third time. If I tried to do that with even the best EVF i would end up having an epileptic fit.Everyone demanding an excellent EVF; doesn't the EOS R already have one of the best EVF on the market? You people are impossible to please.
