    From a few reviews that I've seen I think the EVF is close to continuous if you use the electronic shutter as the image is taken from sensor. With normally shutter you lose the image for a short time as you would with a DSLR, but you don't have to wait for the mirror to come back down. And "adjusting the lens to the AF Module" isn't a problem as the AF is on the sensor versus on the lower part of the body so nothing to get out of whack/ adjustment.

    Comparing DSLR's to mirrorless is comparing mature tech to emerging tech. At this point, mirrorless other than size and weight, doesn't offer me anything over my DSLR's. In fact, I prefer looking through the viewfinder of my DSLR's over my mirrorless. However, just like the SLR replaced the rangefinder and TLR as the most popular camera tech, mirrorless will only get better and will eventually replace the DSLR as the most popular camera tech.

    I know we are days into this thread, but I just found these two blog posts:

    Thoughts on the New Nikon Z-Series

    "While there are areas where Sony has the edge, there are also some areas where Nikon has outdone Sony. For a start, the screen and viewfinder seem to be better. I have always had an issue with Sony screens. It’s actually put me off in some respects, and was my biggest issue when using the A7II and my A6000.

    For video, Nikon are offering a new log profile and 10-bit video, but only with an external recorder. This is both good and bad. Obviously it would be nice to have this internally, but Sony doesn’t do 10 bit in any way, despite people requesting this from Sony for years
    ."

    and

    A few more Nikon Z-Series Notes

    "In my opinion, this isn’t a single “win or lose”, or “one and only shot” attempt from Nikon. This is the start of a long-term effort to transition to Mirrorless. That effort will take time and this is just the first iteration, and a way to attract early adopters. The idea that Nikon would leapfrog 3 generations of Sony technology, in an area that is new to it, in one go is kind of daft if you think about it objectively. They decided to focus on the areas that Sony was traditionally weak in, ergonomics and usability, rather than the technical aspects where Nikon undoubtedly has a disadvantage. But this is only the beginning. It’s not going to happen overnight with one single pair of cameras, and people expecting it to, really should try and see the bigger picture."

    they used to take film into space, and catch the film--jettisoned back to earth--from planes...
