Mirrorless ILCs with very good EVFs?

    I'm just wondering what mirrorless cameras have the most useable EVFs in terms of maintaining a high refresh rate regardless of lighting conditions. So far I find the Olympus and Nikon 1 system EVFs to work really well even in dim light. Since I haven't used all cameras, I'm just wondering what other EVFs meet this criteria? Thanks for any opinions!

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Fuji XT1 - it's really huge and bright and detailed. I'm not sure I ever really tested the limits of it's refresh rate in dim light though...

    Apparently the Leica SL's evf is on another level, but then you do pay for it, in size and money.

    The Fuji X-T1 is one of the best I have ever seen and the Olympus OMD's (just about any version) are also very good.

    Does the X-T10 EVF work similarly to the X-T1 EVF? Also does the Fuji EVFs work similar to the Olympus EVFs in dim conditions?

    I only used the X-T1 briefly but the EVF is friggin' enormous so that's a large part of it's appeal. I don't believe Fuji EVF's auto adjust in dim conditions like Olympus one (I have the E-M10). FWIW I turned auto adjust off. I like the EVF on the Olympus a lot especially with the high refresh rate option (and the newer ones are even better), That said, If I had it to do over I'm not sure I would choose to buy one. I think other cameras have advantages that outweigh the really nice EVF (for me).
