Default Compact w/Optical VF?

Do they still exist?

My Nikon Coolpix 7600 is on its last legs, so looking for a replacement. Perhaps something a wee bit slimmer for pocketing on a daily basis, but would accept some bulk for an optical viewfinder.

Any suggestions?

nikon p7000, canon g11 and g12 and A1100 are about it in the point and shoot market with a ovf.

I dislike cameras without an EVF but LCD-only cameras is a fact of life. The EVFs are now confined to the bridge (bulkier/larger) cameras and DSLRs. So, if size is an important factor, then you're stuck with the LCD. In this case, I'd look for a camera with a good LCD resolution (460,000+) otherwise, you will struggle to compose pictures in bright sunny days.

What about a mju 6010. I see there's one up for grabs here - just got to win to get it. lol

The more I look for something to drop in my pocket for everyday 'snaps' the more I'm resigned to non-optical.

Fergy-

I don't believe the Olympus mju Tough 6010 incorporates an optical view finder.
