Gully Foyle: From the 7100 review:
"The P7100's optical viewfinder coverage is roughly 80%. To the left you can see flash and AF confirmation lights and a diopter adjustment wheel.
It's a nice 'retro' touch but the LCD screen is bright and contrasty enough to be usable in most environments, and the restricted coverage means that its usefulness is limited for anything more critical than snapshots."

Canon G1X:
"Compared to the EVFs mentioned above and the viewfinders of digital SLRs it is very small and not that great to work with. It only covers approximately 80% of the frame and the camera's large lens barrel obstructs the bottom corner of the viewfinder at wide angle, making precise composing of an image almost impossible."

For all of you wanting to torture yourselves with that kind of crap, go ahead!
I say, good riddance to crappy OVFs.

I really disagree with this sentiment, and the dpreview opinion of optical viewfinders on this class of camera :)

Give me an optical viewfinder every time. No matter how restrictive it may be, it's 100% better than not being able to compose in bright and obstructive sunlight.
Just saying ;)

Beautiful shot, well done! Has a great picturesque, painterly quality about it.

Thanks JIM8EL. Yeah the HDR process really brings out the detail of those old buildings. The whole city is full of great shots waiting to happen.
