    I can still see the benefit for fast action photography using something like the D500 but I do know when I had a few months back in the DSLR camp I missed my EVF.

    I have got used to seeing the EVF image pretty much as it will be recorded, with BIF photography I enjoy seeing the exposure compensation result more than an optical image.

    That's a tough question. I've become so accustomed to the EVF now that it would take some time to switch back. Besides the EVF, the hardest thing for me as a Fuji user would be having to dive back into menus.

    I have just got rid of the last of my full frame Nikon bodies and tested them beforehand, as they have been on the shelf for the last couple of years. When I powered UP a D610 I thought it had developed a fault when I looked through the viewfinder because of how dull it seemed. No I don't think I would ever go back.
