Good enough for what you want and blowing away all DSLRs are two different things. It may be good enough for me as well, but right now the jury is still out.

I have tried the A3000 in three different stores now and can't get the viewfinder diopter adjustment right for a sharp view. It isn't a case of going too far one way or another as I can go both ways with it, I just can't get it sharp, period. Haven't tried others yet because they aren't available anywhere near where I live. I didn't have this problem with the various SLT models I tried in the past.

The EVF sucks on it. But myself, I *never* *ever* use a VF. I'm wearing glasses and it's awful squinting through a hole, while all the same, I can comfortable hold the camera in front of me. To photograph the kids and shoot video, I end up holding the camera low, at their level anyway. What would I otherwise do? Duck?

So, how about trying to see if you could adjust to using the LCD only...
