Gluing your eye to a viewfinder is for action and sports :-)
I'm a center of front row cinema kind of guy and I like my eye glued to my EVF. I would need to wear reading glasses if I had to rely on the LCD for focus. However, I don't shut out the world when I'm viewing through my EVF with right eye. That's what my left eye is for. I keep my left eye open, scanning with my peripheral vision for things that may be happening outside the field of my EVF (as in shooting docs) that I should perhaps pay attention to with my lens. Shooting with an EVF doesn't mean you have to have tunnel vision! BTW, my OLED is 100% better than my original Bomb EVF. On a second note, my original EVF from my REd One never used to work with my Epic; just red flashes. But I just tried it after updating to fw 3.3.3, and now it works! It has very milky blacks though, but goes to show how much firmware updates can change things.
Still using the original Bomb and am blissfully ignorant of OLED improvements. Figure what I don't know can't hurt me (or my wallet). $1200 I'd rather not spend at the moment and the original is doing everything I need (and I am an Old School Sony Viewfinder guy). Will be curious to see how long RED will offer their upgrade. ("Dear Santa...")
I'm considering a BT lcos bomb.
Will I be happy, considering I only tested the original (R1) with my Scarlet and found a perfectly usable image, but big and heavy piece?
