A850/A900 Viewfinder Question...
Sep 6, 2009

Hi all,

I'm wondering whether any of you can answer this question for me -- I'm aware that the viewfinder in the A850 has 98% coverage (ie. you see 98% of what you'll end up shooting when looking in the viewfinder), while the A900 has 100% coverage.

My question is this: does this mean that the size/brightness of the A850 viewfinder (when looking through it) is slightly smaller than that on the A900? Or are they identical in terms of brightness/hugeness?

Michael Reitmann says he sees no difference when looking through the two cams -- but is there one, however slight?

Here in Ontario, the A850 is selling for 2500 while the A900 is selling for 2800. I just need to know which to go for (I'm a fan of the brightest viewfinder!).

Thanks in advance,
christopher t.
