Re: Perhaps Sony played the cards just right!!..

No there is a good implementation of LV... it's on the E-330. Swivel screen, separate sensor for framing with full autofocus. Unfortunately, the sceptics voices were too loud, and Oly dumbed it down for the 410 and 510. Real shame as it is a very useful feature for anyone with any imagination.

And the remarks about 'seeing people holding slrs at arms length' are just twaddle. LV is useful:

  • on a tripod for landscape shots

  • on a tripod for macros

  • held like a old-fashoined waist-level VF camera

I was sceptical, picked up an E-330 at firesale prices, and love the feature, though I agree the 410, 510, Canon and Nikon implementations are dumb as there's no swivel screen.
