Nov 22nd 2009 1:30PM I agree that EVFs aren't the best thing. It's just a whole lot easier for the manufacturers to make an EVF than an optical viewfinder that works with multiple focal lengths (a la Leica M-series).
That, in fact, is what I'm wishing for with micro 4/3. That someone will build an E-P2 type camera with interchangable lenses and an (accurate) optical viewfinder. Even if it was limited to a small number of focal lengths (and even a Tri-Elmar type arrangement), I like looking through optics at my subjects and not pixels.
The Leica M9 and it is ideal in almost every respect, except of course, the price.
Nov 22nd 2009 12:53PM I'm skeptical of that logic, Scott.
My daughter has a Canon superzoom camera with an EVF. By this logic, she shouldn't be able to take pictures using flash at all because she won't be able to see anything through the viewfinder?

"Of course, with the viewfinder attached, you can no longer use the flash, but you obviously won't need the flash in those situations."
Perhaps I'm dense, but this isn't obvious to me at all. Why wouldn't I want to use an eye-level viewfinder when using flash?
