Why would anyone want a cellphone with a viewfinder?

Why will 99% of the world ever need a camera besides the one on their phone?

Why is there any money to be made by making cameras with viewfinders for miserly curmudgeons who prefer their old cameras and will find 1,000 reasons to like anything new anyway?

Who in blazes will use a viewfinder if you are wearing sunglasses and can't see squat through the dinky thing anyway under bright sun?

Why worry about careful composition via viewfinder at all if you have a 20mp camera supposedly to be able to crop the result?

Aren't auto exposure and auto focus supposed to address what historically required careful gauging with the meters in OVFs of old?

Ever try to track an erratic sports event through a viewfinder? Was it easy to see the ball or tell a pass from a fake?

Perhaps one day you'll put your toy cameras down, and pick up a DSLR .... learn how to use one.... learn how to use one properly... then you'll be able to come back here and reply to your own rhetorical questions.
