Just to throw my 2c in, the EVF is generally very good (though it can struggle a little in very low-light situations (it becomes jumpy), but that is forgiveable IMO).
Shutter lag hasn't really been an issue for me, but that may partly be because the AF is pityfully slow and innacurate in many situations. Many a time I have presented it with a scene with plenty of highly-constrasting objects at moderate distances and it still fails to find something to lock onto (and even when it does lock on, it's still pretty slow to get there). It's the main failing in my mind.
There are also a few minor quirks and limitations in the software, but nothing of any great significance in reality, lenses are very good, and most of the controls are well thought out. So while it is a little flawed in places, if you're not trying to shoot sports or wildlife, overall it's a great camera.
