Viewfinders: Much ado about nothing.
Aug 9, 2009

Know thy camera!

I've used most of the Olympus DSLRs for either short or long periods and have never found the OVFs on any of them to be a detriment to making photographs.

Primarily, I use E-1s and, as we all know, there are no issues. I also use DMC-L1s as back-ups and, while the OVF is smaller, I've learned how to use them. I also have an E-330 and have no issues. All I really needed to get a grasp on was that the information was on the right side of the OVF rather than, like the E-1, below.
I think that entirely too much crăp is posted regarding poor quality OVFs.

If we look at the advantages of these cameras rather then posting about how horrible they are, we'd all be better off.

Learn the camera, its strengths and its weaknesses, and go exploit the strengths rather than moaning about the alleged weaknesses.
