A580 viewfinder and handling

Hi all,

Don't want to start anything dangerous here, please don't turn this into some evf vs ovf thing..

I'm looking to (finally) upgrade my trusty old KM 5D to something new. The A55 looked good at first, but I'm a bit of a traditionalist so the A580 looks like the best non-SLT prosumer choice for me at this time.

If anyone has owned both these cameras I'm curious to know what sort of handling the A580 has compared to the 5D. Nothing specific, just observations of good and bad things. Also if there are useful features from the 5D that aren't available on the A580.

The viewfinder issue also keeps getting mentioned, probably because everyone likes to compare the A580 to the A55. Not me, I'm comparing it to the 5D .. Is it about the same size as the 5D?
