Need an EVF category in the reviews section.

I would like to see a section in the digital camera reviews to narrow by cameras that have Electronic View Finders (EVF). I currently shoot with the Sony DHC-H50 and I love the 100% view and being able to adjust setting and see them without having to both take a test shot and then having to look down at the LCD screen to preview your settings. I am looking to upgrade to a Interchangeable lens camera that features EVF but I can't really compare them because there isn't an option to narrow to cameras with the EVF feature. If there is a way to do this that I am missing please enlighten me!

don't understand

The EVF is giving the same info as an LCD screen. They don't give you whether you shot for the proper exposure or whether you are getting motion blur. The only thing I can seen in an LCD or color EVF is whether the white balance is about right, but that's pretty much it.

Ok thanks for you opinion but that's not what I wanted

I want to have a way to compare EVF cameras because I like EVF cameras I wasn't looking for reasons why other people don't like them or that you don't understand why I like them so thanks anyway.

I was just commenting

You said that you could make adjustments and see changes without having to take a test shot/"chimp". I just commented that photographers, whether with an EVF or an optical viewfinder, still have to take a test shot to see if the adjustments for exposure or have the desired depth of field or shutter speed. I just didn't understand what you meant by you could see the difference in settings in the EVF.
