Re: slightly off-topic...or not (re cameras)

Not everyone agrees. I prefer the LCD on the back of the camera to the IMO-useless optical viewfinders found on most point and shoots--I have the LX2 which doesn't have an optical viewfinder and I have never wished it had one. Then again, I prefer composing 2-3 feet away from my face as the 4x5 is my most used camera.

Now my new hobby horse-- do NOT get one without a viewfinder. I just got a new little Panasonic Lumix to carry in my purse, and I cannot see anything in that d***d LCD window. Have gone back to lugging my older, larger Lumix around with me. Maybe it helps prevent osteoporosis.
