    I have an EVF coming with my RX1 today but I'm curious; how do the other viewfinders work?

    Do they project any information?

    Do you just get crop lines?

    How do you figure out what you are focusing on if you can't see the focus box?

    I'm just curious.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    They're just dumb OVFs with approximate framelines and nothing else. If you're zone focussing and like them as a framing device, I guess they can be useful, but they don't give you ANY information...
