viewfinder dissapointment
2 months ago

I was a bit disappointed in the viewfinder of my A900 after all the fuzz about how big and bright it was. At first I didn't understand why, it was substantially larger than the one on my A700 after all.
Then I took my old Minolta X700 (from under a thick layer of dust) and put it to my eye..WOW that was (literally) an eye-opener...much larger than I ever remembered it to be. Also way easier to focus manually because of the grittier matte screen.

Anybody know why they don't make them so big anymore? And how does the EVF in A99 compare?

Ideally, the lens captures what the eye had in mind...but the damn thing won't listen.
