No offence... but WHAT?? (STRANGEST REPLY EVER)

" No viewfinder no sale."

Do you know what they call a camera with interchangeable lenses and a Viewfinder?

IT'S CALLED A DSLR !!!!!!!!

The prism on top of the camera connects the viewfinder to the view-through-the-lens via a mirror. Remove the mirror and the viewfinder can't see through the lens. So an optical view finder is not going to give you any information like focus lock etc.

Seriously, this has got to the the DUMBEST argument against buying a camera like this.

Want a view through that expensive lens of yours? Buy a DSLR. If you think this type of camera needs an OVF, perhaps you should consider taking up a different hobby. Because you missed the whole point of a camera like this and why it exists.
