Default EVF or LCD for FZ35?

I'm curious which do you use more and which do you think is better for less shaking when not using a tripod?

Good question - I think it would depend on the circumstances. Taking away all props - trees fences rocks etc - I would think the EVF might be steadier since you are holding it closer to your body.

While taking picture, if you lean your back to somewhere, this will reduce shaking. I use EVF generally. When any other want to take picture with it, they use LCD.

When I use EVF, I cant tell for sure if the image is properly in focus or not.

There is a very valid physical reason why using the EVF produces more sharpness: your two arms, and resting the camera against your face actually creates a rudimentary tripod.

By using spot focus, you can actually select the most important point in your photo and specifically focus on that point.

This is a very personal matter of preference. I think you (and only you) can answer it. I am an EVF type of person, for several reasons. If the camera I'm shooting with has an EVF, that's what I use...100% of the time, period. However, I know people who really dislike shooting through the EVF and will use the LCD, if not 100% of the time, very close to it (the exception being in conditions where ambient light is too bright or too dark, making it difficult to frame the shot through the LCD). So, since you have a camera which offers both, I suggest you play with both options and then pick the one you feel more comfortable with. There is no right or wrong here. It appears that people who have been involved with photography for a long time (before LCD) tend to prefer the EVF while people who got into photography after the LCD became available and started with those P&S w/o the EVF, tend to prefer the LCD because that's what they are accustomed to.

if you have less battery power, you can prefer to take picture by EVF
