Default Must Have Viewfinder

I'm looking for a compact camera with strong zoom (at least 10x) and compact size but which also has a viewfinder so I can see when shooting in strong sunlight. Several camera brands offer the zoom and small size. But none seem to come with a viewfinder. Anyone know of a camera that delivers all 3?

Just think for a second about what you are asking for.

The only way to achieve what you want is to use an Electronic Viewfinder or something that shows you the view through the lens.

How would you design a 10x zoom with an optical viewfinder that wasn't an SLR?

Please take a good look at the Sony H-50 camera. it is a great camera and has 15X optical zoom with an excellent EVF. That is as close as you are going to get in a super zoom camera.
