I love a optical view finder!

EVF's tend to be slow and never as crisp and clear as a optical.. The only draw back on a optical is :

1/ No icons or other info that shows on a EVF

2/ If you use a aux. lens you must use the lcd to see the new view provided by the aux. lens

I know, but on electronic you can see if its in focus or not!!!! And if its too bright you can look threw the EVF and set the settings, if it's too bright, thats why I like EVF's better.

Oh I wasn't debating Electronic Vs Optical Viewfinders. Personally I FAR prefer electronic, it lets me see digital zoom, filters, etc. However, I'm talking about cameras that have a viewfinder (any at all) versus those with JUST an LCD screen. I don't like using the screen...

S.Rubber

In a optical finder there is a blue pair of brackets that turn yellow when in focus.

When the light level goes down a evf gets dark and or very grainy (noise).

Optical wil give you a view of the existing light level.

Millions of Leica rangefinder cameras can't all be wrong.

I sold off my Nikon cameras and lenses and stuck with a Leica M3 and a 35mm, 50mm and a 90mm for many years and never regreted it!
