I find it difficult to use a digital camera without an electronic viewfinder--and shooting macros without one is just about impossible. Can someone recommend a model with this feature? I'd like 5-7 megapixels and a decent amount of optical zoom. Super macro ability.EXCELLENT picture quality! Thanks very much.

I like my Olympus C8080; good EVF, 8MP, both Macro and Super Maco modes, with auto or manual focus. In addition to the electronic view finder, it has a bright LCD panelon the back whichswings away from the body. It's great for shooting flowers low to the ground.

Acamera that cannot be beat in the descriptions that u have given is the Panasonic DMC-FZ20 it is a 5 mega pixel, 12X optical zoom, has macro and super macro modes and has a feel of a SLR with alot of manual controls, it has a nice bright 2.0 inch LCD screen and a electronic viewfinder, u should check it out, http://www.steves-digicams.com/2004_reviews/fz20.htmlhope this helps.

Second vote for Fz20. It really is a good camera. Many reviews have raised it to be the best in super zoom class.

Only little minus comes from lcd not gaining up in low light situations.

Picture quality is great and it has lots of manual controls.

Image stabilazer is a must.
