Optical viewfinder
Nov 7, 2004

I dislike using the LCD screen for composing a shot. I don't like the way they lag or jerk in motion, blank out during a shot, and go in and out of focus. One of the things that attracts me to the Pentax P&S cameras is that they offer substantial zoom capability but don't require me to use an electronic viewfinder.

I know that there is also a price to pay for using the optical viewfinders. You don't see a full frame, it can be hard to use with glasses, you get nose prints on the LCD.

Can anyone comment on the optical viewfinders on the 750Z or SV or other Pentax cameras? Are they too tiny to use or are they quite usable? I know this is a personal, subjective issue but I'm interested in people's thoughts.

Thanks.
