Well, I guess I'm not on your list of sophisticated photographers, but am on
the list of mindless automatons.
As far as I am concerned, I would much prefer it if my G11 had no optical
finder at all, and was thus smaller, lighter
and had been less expensive.
A bigger, heavier and more expensive finder with better optical quality and
close to full coverage would be even worse,
from my point of view.
I quite like using the LCD and have yet to find a situation where the
articulation didn't allow me to see it in bright
light well enough to get the shot. Would I like an SLR quality viewfinder?
Sure, but that's not possible within the
other constraints that make it a camera I really like. By the time they added a
view finder you would approve of, the
camera would be big, heavy and expensive enough that I might as well simply get
an E-620 or a Sony SLT A55 and get a
