Regarding the EVF, there seem to be conflicting opinions about its quality, but at least it would be, as you said, “better than nothing” in very bright light situations. I guess it would be best if people could try out the EVF for themselves before buying, to see if it is adequate for their needs.

It's gonna be the LF1 EVF furor all over again.

"This EVF sucks. In fact it's so bad, I'd rather compose with the LCD, and I hate composing with LCDs"

"I don't understand why so many people are saying that this EVF sucks. I think it's perfectly usable. I can tell whether people are smiling or not when looking through it, and it doesn't strain my eyes. What else does one need?"

etc etc

It's always fun...

And yeah, great comparison Ian. Quite informative.

I've said it before & I'll say it again - a Clearviewer solves all the worries about "tiny EVF' and "Glare on LCD".

I'll probably be getting a ZS40 and I HOPE the EVF is OK - but for that zoom and the (at least reportedly) better OIS, I'll happily just move my Clearviewer over to th ZS40 if the EVF is "wanting".

As to Touch Screen - good riddance, I hated it on my ZS19.

Agreed & seconded. The EVF on the TZ60/ZS40 is the the same as the one in the LF1 and, trust me, I have one, they are fine. That said I shall be keeping my Clearviwer for use on the TZ60 for the days I'm out doing "Serious photography"

Tonight I put all of my cameras for sale on ebay; my G6+14-140, My new LFI (Xmas gift) & my TZ30, in order to rationalise. Strangely it's the TZ30 that I have most queries about!!
