I have noticed that after I take a picture, the actual image shows slightly more (of the left-hand side) than what my viewfinder shows. Has anyone else experienced this as well?

This sounds normal, the specs in the handbook for my DS suggest that in the viewfinder you only see 95% of the image recorded on the sensor.

That's normal. Useful sometimes, too, when I think I'm too close and that I've cut something off, then find its there anyway. Just think about some of the other dSLRs that were out a year ago - I think one of them (don't remember which one) was supposed to only have 85% view.

It appears to only do this on the left side...is that normal?

Ofcourse once you KNOW that and compesate... you may be back to in advetantly crop something.... yest its mostly a saftely factor.... and with high MP camreas no real res lost to crop that 95% to being 100%.
