I find myself mainly shooting without the EVF (which I have purchased), as I can get more creative angles by holding the camera away from my face. I think the EVF will become much more important when shooting outdoors, landscapes, etc., where careful composition is critical.
Also - the high ISO capability of this camera is fantastic. I have set max auto ISO to 3200, and just shoot away, not worrying about what ISO the camera selects. I also like that the camera tends to pick 1/80s as the slowest shutter speed before bumping ISO to get the exposure. This gives me a lot of freedom and worry-free shooting in Aperture-Priority mode, which is the only way I like to shoot.
