Before I bought the A77 I went to the local store, looked at the A57 (which I was ready to buy), and it was okay. I then looked at the A65 and was blown away with how much nicer the viewfinder was. Got the A77 in my hands and loved the way it felt. On the viewfinder alone it was worth going to the A65 in my opinion.

As for the viewfinder not showing things it's quite the opposite. It will show the photo EXACTLY how it will look before you take it. I pulled out my old Sony A300 with an optical viewfinder and I felt somewhat lost. It also made me realize how lucky I was to have the EVF.
