They need to fix the black-out lag. Its almost unusable as a portrait camera

"Active" portraits, yes. For tight framing, I'm finding that anything more than a short burst, you just try to keep the subject in the frame while they gesture, move about...It can be frustrating unless the subject is relatively still--or responding to directions. Adds new meaning to "spray and pray." I'm wondering how this is going to be for events.

Hoping for some improvement with this firmware update, but I think we won't see a significantly faster EVF until the next body is released.

D@mn! I have Eye-AF in a very dark environment at 6(!!) meters with the RF50 now! The AF point is also MUCH smoother to move around. This is great! Got a few shots of my wife with her glasses on, and while they are not sunglasses and dark, I'm happy to say the Eye-AF missed the glasses and got the nearest eye no matter how lose or far out from the face they were.

Yes, feels like a significant improvement, I will test it out in a running event soon to see how it does in a fast-paced environment.
