    the comments on both the Nikon and Canon mirrorless cameras are kinda funny... people are like:

    for years now: OMG Nikon and Canon dont make a mirrless camera...they suck! they arent doing their business right! they arent doing right by their consumers!

    Nikon and Canon finally produce mirrorless cameras: OMG Nikon and Canon arent making mirrorless cameras to the exact specs that "I" think they should be! they suck! they arent doing their business right! they arent doing right by their customers!

    Huh, I don't seem to have any problems tracking anything from large birds to swallows with my mirrorless.

    I think the evf takes a bit of getting used to, just like any new piece of equipment. I can’t imagine going back to a non evf and using just the exposure + - again after being able to SEE my exposure.

    This is where I’m at.

    I hated EVFs as much or more than anyone, even after first getting the x-t20. But it’s 100% won me over at this point and I could never go back.

    What was the issue(s)? Was it just different from what you are used to?

    I hated looking through it, seemed like a TV set from the 80s

    I had the Fuji X-T10 and took picture's of a bird in flight a duck I think, it nailed focus but i was still seeing the bird in the EVF like replay after the bird was long gone.

    I guess I can see that. Having gone straight to mirrorless and not using a DSLR its not something I had to get used to. But not all EVF's are equal as well. Don't know the A7 so can't compare but the Oly definitely doesn't look like a TV set from the 80's, its got very good resolution. I love the fact that what I see is what I get and can adjust on the fly.

    I was watching news videos about Canon and Nikon and Fuji mirrorless cameras that have been announced. In one video, Tony Northrup mentioned that one new model has 30 refreshes per second, but also has a 60 refreshes per second option, as well as a high-speed action mode which has 100 refreshes per second. So...the slow,laggy mirrorless EVFs of the past have been improved upon!

    According to what I have read, the new Nikon Z7's EVF image is actually _VERY_ crisp and clear...as in better than the Nikon D850's optical finder image,according to one reviewer who was at the Nikon New York premier of the Nikon Z7 camera on the 25th of August. A second reviewer I watched really,really,really likes the Nikon Z7's EVF image quality.

    In the early days of mirrorless, the refresh rate and the image quality as seen through the EVF were both rather unimpressive; apparently, the better cameras are now substantially better than what used to be the norm.

    Anyway...

    I do actually think the Z6 and Z7 has a nice looking body style and they seem to have kept buttons and menu much like the DSLR which i think is a good thing.
