I've been lusting for a new camera, but only now have I an inkling what I truly want.

Re: To answer your question, (the short version)

You know, as I read through this thread, the thought kept occurring to me that the viewfinder "hump" isn't a "fake" one 0 there does need to be a hump of some sort or other. I agree that the peaked design is entirely a retro gimmick, since there's no real pentaprism inside, but... why not? Why is a peaked shape less practical than, say, a rounded off hill or something? Or a square (like a permanently-affixed VF4 or something)?
