How do *you* shoot with an SLR?

The problem appears only in very few circumstances, and when
you use a tripod *and* it's darkish *and* strong light shines
into the viewfinder ... well, the camera either has a small
rubber cover for the viewfinder on the strap (which you don't
need on a tripod) or a manual shutter for the viewfinder,
which you can open and close with a dedicated lever.

The lag between the light entering the EVIL's lens and the
display in the EV is *much* *much* more of a problem and it's
in every situation that's not static. Do you consider that as
crippling or as a real limitation? So why should we consider
covering the viewfinder in rare situations as a problem?
