43Rumors says no built-in EVF on the new GX1

If this is true, I've lost all interest. Another bulky, quirky, wobbly add-on finder makes this just another pretender. If I wanted to hold the camera at arms length to compose I'd buy a P&S, and what's the point of building a compact camera if you then have to stick a wart on top to make it useful.

Yeah, I know lots of people don't have an issue with the lack of an EVF. Personally, I can't understand how any serious photographer can shoot in sunlight, or at low shutter speeds, without one.
