Hi all,
       I bought an Olympus 510, but the more I used it the more I became 
irritated by the viewfinder display. It seemed to be right at the periphery of 
my vision. I still use it when I need a lightweight, compact system but FAR 
more of my digital shots are taken with a Canon G9 or Canon 40D.

I find that the viewfinder display of the 40D is a lot easier to use than that 
of the 510. The 510 viewfinder is a real disappointment to me..and no 
comparison to the wonderful view produced by the 4Ti.

This is one of the real downsides of digital cameras produced by Olympus.
