Your mistaken. todays viewfinders are birghter thats the problem. we our trading focus pop and focusing aids for brightness. makes sense in most cameras, not in the DF

I really don't thionk I am wrong. I just looked at my old film Pentax ME Super and it is bigger and brighter

I hear many lamenting the "big bright viewfinders" found in the old film cameras and I must say that I agree that it would be nice to experience that again. However, with the advent of auto focus and their associated requirements, we can no longer expect the big bright VF of old. So, maybe there is a case for a manual focus only version of the Df? Amongst the issues that face auto focus VFs, this would mean that the mirror would not need to be half opaque for the AF module and all the light would go to a big bright VF.

The problem is, hoa many would actually buy one?
