    Maybe can put this system inside their future Nex camera which is much more compact.............

    In any case, I don't see how EVF prevents oil and dust or whatever. As long as it's interchangeable lens system and you need to change lens, dust and dirt will enter sooner or later.
    bro, we are talking about OIL, not dust/dirt which is definitely unavoidable in lens change.
    why the hell do you need to have OIL in the camera in the first place!

    Because it still has moving parts, bro..

    So, even if you use a mirrorless body, you still need a lens -> there you have it, another moving part which needs oil

    Quite agree.. tried my friend's NEX-5 before and the AF is not as fast yet (compared to full-grown AF system on most DSLRs).

    The thing is, it is still about DSLR as a whole. It's just that it happened on a Nikon product, it doesn't mean Canon, Sony, Pentax etc's DSLR's is 100% immune to similar problem dude. Geez.

    but as mentioned one potential advantage is the wysiwyg preview which give quite accurate representation of the final captured image. not to mention less moving parts and lighter weight advantage over ovf.
    Haha wysiwyg? Why do you need to see? Before I press the shutter I already know what I will be getting.

    Maybe will take a while to close the gap.

    But I really love the compactness and weight of the mirrorless.
    Then SLT is your answer. Lightning fast PDAF, even when using the rear LCD (unlike the slow CDAF used by OVF brands)

    please... this is called knowing the conditions you're shooting in.

    if beforehand, you already made the right adjustments, you won't need to mess around that much while shooting.

    Does TS really want an answer? The initial question is already more of rhetorical nature...

    It is not about being pro or not. It has probably more to do with inadequacy of experience and skills if you cannot visualize your shot before it is taken.

    And apart from the obvious differences between OVF and EVF, battery life is a big issue with cameras using EVF and liveview, as the main sensor needs to be on all the time. Not to mention heat from the sensor can cause a build up of noise.

    Do not judge others based on your own incompetence.

    You cannot doesn't mean others cannot, regardless how much you hope so.
