I was so impressed with the EVF that I purchased a Noctilux myself recently. My dealer just happened to get one in and he called me and I couldn't resist. I never considered it with the RF because I don't have the best eyesight. But it is spectacular with the EVF. To tell the truth I leave the EVF on all the time and use it almost always to focus with all my lens. The 90 Summilux and 135 APO are now very usable and I feel like I'm finally seeing what these lenses are capable of.

DIGLLOYD: The EVF eliminates compositional and focus errors. It is a godsend for many lighting conditions and/or for those whose eyes are not entirely 20/20. And for fast lenses, one can now almost guarantee ideal focus, making lenses like the Noctilux far less hit and miss, particularly at medium distance.

EVF prefocus is a good combination with the rangefinder. For some subjects the rangefinder is still a faster way of working, but the EVF sure beats missing focus just a bit with fast lenses like the Noctilux. My feeling is that the combination of an EVF and an optical viewfinder is ideal and highly complementary, so much so that picking up a DSLR and not finding an EVF attached is a bit frustrating. Perhaps Nikon and Canon will figure this out later this year?
